Photograph of the Niagara River early spring circa 1920s. The picture was taken from Queen's Royal Park at the foot of King Street. Across the river is Fort Niagara, the lighthouse and the water tower. Of interest is the number of buildings on the river’s edge. All but the two U.S. Coast Guard buildings are gone. A river barge can be seen as well as an old car. The fencing would have been around the Whale Inn.
