Michigan Central Railroad

I picked up this card mainly because I didn’t know anything about Michigan Central Railroad, but soon realized that this is an interesting card.  The picture was shot from the Ontario side of Horseshoe Falls. The picture shows Falls View.  Michigan Central Railroad trains had been stopping here since 1885 to let passengers take in the scenery.  I read that this place, in the mid to late 1700s, was known on maps as “Grand View”.

The card was mailed from Youngstown NY (north of the Falls) to Tioga Center, now just Tioga, NY, in July, 1938.  Tioga is in the south of the state, between Elmira and Binghamton.

The message was pretty thoroughly erased, but it seems to be the usual “having a wonderful time” thing.
