Exploring photos with Jim Smith: Niagara Lions Beach

There was seldom a summer day that we kids did not spend at the Niagara Lions beach (now better known as the site of the gazebo and Queen’s Royal Beach). Often there were so many people sun bathing on their towels that you had to step over and between them to get to the water. Some days the sand was so hot from the sun it would almost burn your feet to walk on it. In the 1950s, the Wilkinson family ran the Niagara Lions Club hot dog and french fry stand, which also had change rooms.
