Visiting the breathtaking Niagara Falls required wearing raingear. This family had itself portrayed twice by the ambrotypist: once with and once without raincoats in the exact same spot. The famous tourist attraction buzzed with photographic activity. Visitors and travellers were portrayed by all manner of photographers. And pictures of the Falls were for sale everywhere.
