Exploring Photos with the NOTL Museum: Niagara Belt Line, 1906

Going through the Niagara Gorge, Niagara Falls, Lewiston and Queenston, passengers of this international trolley system would witness all the natural beauties of the Niagara River. The trolley is waiting for sightseers to reboard at a station at the base of the Niagara River Gorge, on the U.S. side of the river. The car is southbound and would next scale the side of the gorge to the top, then cross the river over the former Honeymoon Bridge (located 500 feet upriver of the present-day Rainbow Bridge) and follow the Niagara River north on the Canadian side at the top of the gorge. At Queenston, it would descend the Niagara Escarpment, cross the old Queenston-Lewiston Bridge, and at Lewiston, again enter the bottom of the gorge, as part of the Circle Route of Niagara's Great Gorge Trip.
