Title

Grand Canyon of the East--Historic Letchworth State Park

Description

Mini-postcard album features ten views of the local attraction: Middle Falls, Mt. Morris Dam, Letchworth State Park Museum, Upper Falls, Glen Iris Inn, Statue of Mary Jemison, Inspiration Point, the "Scenic Gorge of the Genesee River," Lower Falls, and Wolf Creek.

The object also is notable for this specimen of tourist prose: "Long ago when the Seneca Indians were masters of a forest empire, this was Portage, the carrying place for war conoes. The beauty of the three great Falls and the magnificence of the gorge of the Genesee cast its spell over the untutored Red Man. The White men came and called the place 'The Grand Canyon of the East.'"
