Description

Excerpt from Twenty-Ninth Annual Report of the Commissioners for the Queen Victoria Niagara Falls Park, 1914 The complete text of Mr. Olmsted's report is printed as a division' of the appendix, and furnishes much material for thought with its excellent suggestions. Such a review will be valuable in confirming the opinions of the Board and indicating improvements to plans under contemplation, thereby assisting the Com missioners to attain results second to none in the expansion and progress of the public domain at Niagara Falls and vicinity. The new Table Rock House will be classic in style and so located that the present traffic requirements will be adequately provided for, while any large future increase may be accommodated by a simple readjustment of the electric railway tracks. A photographic reproduction of the eastern elevation is contained in the report. Although an estimate sufficiently large to allow the Commissioners to advertise and award contracts was authorized, the progress of studying the design did not advance sufficiently to permit tenders being called for before the declara tion of hostilities on the continent of Europe made it desirable to curtail all but necessary expenditure for the remainder of the year 1914. At the request of the Government all works not actually under contract or under way were omitted from consideration after the Ist of August.
