Over on my other blog, I posted photos of the Aerocar that crosses above the Whirlpool at Niagara Falls. You can be assured that I did not go on it. I merely stood by and took pictures to share with all of you.
Here are two postcards of the same Spanish Aerocar from almost 100 years ago. This card was mailed in 1921 on June 28th. Apparently it was raining, but the sender did some sightseeing all the same. He doesn't say if he went on this cable car.
this card is probably from the same era, but I do wonder why there is only one person shown in the car?
The Aero Car was designed by a Spanish engineer, Leonardo Torres Quevedo and has been in operation since 1916. The cable car is suspended from six sturdy cables and offers a wonderful view of the Niagara Whirlpool which is formed at the end of the rapids where the gorge turns abruptly counterclockwise, and the river escapes through the narrowest channel in the gorge.(Niagara Parks website)
