Horse Shoe Falls with the Tower
The source print is from a drawing by W. H. Bartlett and appeared in N. P. Willis American Scenery (1840).
The 300ft wooden walkway over the Terrapin Rocks was built in 1827, and the Terrapin Tower in 1833. A spiral staircase inside gave access to a viewing platform. The Tower was demolished in 1873. The walkway was still in existence in 1934 but gone by 1954. The first section of the Fall was filled in at that time to create Terrapin Point, losing the first 120m of the Fall.

Pattern 1/438 dessert plate sticker

I love old stickers on china. They add to the history of the piece. Never mind that the information on them is often a little bit wrong!
