'The Cave of the Winds', 1872. Creator: Harry Fenn

'The Cave of the Winds', 1872. Tourists at the base of Niagara Falls, USA: '...bridges have been built from rock to rock, under the very cataract itself, and amid all its vapory spray and turmoil and deafening roar. We stagger blindly on, preceded by the guide, and blinded by the torrents of spray that are incessantly dashed in our faces and on our backs. The concussion of the waters produces corresponding currents of air, which beat and buffet and twirl us about...The sun shines down upon the seething waters, and its slanting arrows of light are seized upon by the mist, and broken into myriad scintillations of prismatic hues, into fragmentary rainbows, and globes and bubbles of crimson and green...columns of spray are drifting and sweeping madly in every direction...All this while our ears are stunned by a demoniacal orgy of sounds. The cataract shrieks and groans and howls and bellows in fifty different accents at once, while over all dominates the deep, booming roar of the distant Horseshoe Fall'. 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. [D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1872]
