Everyone was running down to the river.
Great masses of ice often came down river and over the falls from Lake Erie
and pushed out the steel supports from it's foundation.
Here's a picture of the old bridge...
I have pictures and postcards of the bridge laying on the ice
but they are copyrighted, look them up on the internet!
Now the factories are above the falls, if you ride along the Robert Moses Parkway
it is a beautiful view of the upper river on one side
and the factories all lined up on the other.
One of his stories was about going out to Pontiac Michigan
send money, he was wired 10.00 for gas and food, and eventually made it home.
These winter story pictures are not very colorful.
I am sure many of you have heard the old story
that Henry Ford said you could get the Model T in any
color you wanted....as long as it was black!
I would love to hear from my readers. Click on "comments"
