At the end of March 1955 the Niagara river was completely jammed with ice 50-feet thick above the waterline. Two houses, ten cottages and numerous docks and boat houses were completely destroyed. The picture shows the ice in the entrance to the Niagara marina with two boat houses and Shepherd boat works in the background.
