Niagara Falls - Then and Now

A photographic journey through the years

Take a look back at historical Niagara Falls with photographs from our Local History Collection. To celebrate Canada's 150th birthday, the Niagara Falls Public Library  worked with community partners to bring photos from our Historic Niagara Digital Collections out of the archives and into the city by placing them in the locations they were originally taken. Visit the Niagara Falls Then and Now website here. More photos and history are added regularly!

A community oral history.

Niagara Falls Public Library and the Niagara Falls Museums have partnered to conduct round table local history discussions based on the photos from Canada 150: Niagara Falls - Then and Now. Thank you to everyone who shared their stories of the city through the years to help us preserve our oral history for future generations. Videos from the discussions have been transcribed, and have been posted on this site .

This initiative was made possible by the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a collaboration between Niagara Falls Public Library, the Government of Canada, and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast to coast.

Cette initiative est rendue possible grâce au Fonds communautaire pour le 150e anniversaire du Canada, qui est une collaboration entre Niagara Falls Public Library, les fondations communautaires canadiennes, le gouvernement du Canada et des leaders extraordinaires de l’Atlantique au Pacifique à l’Arctique.
