Niagara-Falls, N.Y. 1882. H. Wellge del. Beck & Pauli Lith.

Reproduction bird's-eye view map of Niagara Falls, New York, drawn by Henry Wellge and published by J. J. Stoner in 1881-82. The "Honeymoon Capital of the World" has had a long history as a tourist center. In 1801, Theodosia Burr (daughter of Aaron Burr) and Joseph Alston traveled here to marry and three years later Napoleon Bonaparte's younger brother Jerome married his fiance Elizabeth Patterson here. The War of 1812 paralyzed growth in the area while the U. S. and Canada battled at their borders, but soon after, resumed its resort image. Several hotels were established to accommodate travelers who came by buggies, boats and trains to enjoy the falls' beauty. Visitors were allowed to walk out onto the river below the falls over a natural ice bridge which was formed from the spray mixed with the cold. People would use the ice for tobogganing and skating until it tragically collapsed in 1912, killing three. The City of Niagara Falls would be incorporated from the villages of Manchester and Suspension Bridge ten years after this map was published.

This panoramic illustrated map from 1882 shows buildings, bridges and clearly labeled streets.
