Sept. 26, 1968: "The barge that had been hung on Niagara River rocks 3,000 feet above the Horseshoe Falls for nearly 50 years is finally beginning to come apart. This aerial view by Prior Aviation Service Inc. shows the right front portion (as you view the picture) has disintegrated. The 80-by-30-foot barge broke loose from a tug Aug. 6, 1918, while two workmen were aboard. They were marooned aboard for 19 hours until a cannon-shot line was used to rig a breeches buoy rescue. It was feared the barge would break loose any second, but it has stuck around to become a tourist attraction for half a century."
