Her mother had a cousin living in Niagara Falls that year.
She told the family that she and her neighbours woke up in the night feeling something was wrong. It took a while but they finally realized that it was the lack of noise.
They had all become so used to the roar of that the silence was unusual enough to alert their senses. Of course, at that time nearly all the houses were near the falls.
Amazing pictures !!! Almost 100 years old.
Can you imagine walking on Niagara Falls ???
