Niagara Falls - The Old Scow

 Niagara Falls - The Old Scow

This dumping scow marooned and rusting away in the Upper Rapids has been a point of interest since August 1918, when it brooke loose from its towing tug with two men aboard.

The men had the presence of mind to open the bottom dumping doors, grounding the scow on a rocky ledge where it has remained since. The men spent almost 29 hours on the barge before they were rescued by means of a breeches buoy connected to a line that was shot out from the roof of the Toronto Power Generation Station.
