Additional Details:
the suspension bridge from Queenstown to Lewiston. The Suspension Bridge over the Niagara River, above Lewiston, is 1050 feet long, and stretches 80 feet above the surface of the water. It was opened to the public in July, 1899. It is the only suspension bridge crossing the river, the others being constructed on the arch or cantilever principles. The bridge practically connects Lewiston on the American side and Queenstown., named after Queen Charlotte, on the Canadian side. The first suspension bridge at this point was erected in 1850 and was wrecked by a hurricane in 1865
