'Silver Cascade', 1872. Creator: Frederick William Quartley
'Silver Cascade', 1872. Waterfall on Lake Superior, Minnesota, USA. 'The Silver Cascade falls from an overhanging cliff, one hundred and seventy-five
feet, into the lake below. The fall of Niagara is one hundred and sixty-five feet, ten feet less than the Silver, which, however, is but a ribbon in breadth, compared to the "Thunder of Waters". The Silver is a beautiful fall, and the largest among the Pictures [Pictured Rocks]; but the whole coast of Superior is spangled with the spray of innumerable cascades and rapids, as all the little rivers, instead of running through the gorges and ravines of the lower-lake country, spring boldly over the cliffs...'. From "Picturesque America; or, The Land We Live In, A Delineation by Pen and Pencil of the Mountains, Rivers, Lakes...with Illustrations on Steel and Wood by Eminent American Artists" Vol. I, edited by William Cullen Bryant.
