"Named after the Indian maiden of legendary fame, two of these sturdy craft carry thousands of visitors each year to view the falls directly below them."
This postcard was sent from Toronto in 1952 and is postmarked on the front and back.
The sender tells their friend in Indiana that "everyone is so nice."
