Niagara Falls and The Home of Shredded Wheat
Here you see a photo of the front and back cover of an old visitor guide for Niagara Falls. I found this on Mullins Books, that can be purchased. Thanks to Scott Young for having a piece of History. I am still in disbelief with the many trips to Niagara Falls, and the many times I simply walked by this building. My focus was waterfalls of course!
