05. An Old Observation Tower
f5.6 1/500 sec
This is the top of the old Maple Leaf Village observation tower in Niagara Falls, now Casino Niagara. The observation tower has not been functional since Maple Leaf Village closed. There was talk of tearing it down a few years ago due to safety concerns, but repairs were completed in order for the sign to remain erected. It is now really just a 341' billboard for Casino Niagara.

i really like your pics of the casino tower in niagara falls ON. i was wondering if you have any pics of the tower before it was remodelled? when it was known as the kodak tower. i was always fascinated with that tower as a kid, there was something really eerie about the open-steel construction. yet there are very few photographs of it then, thank you :)
