U.S. #961
3¢ U.S.-Canada Friendship
 
Issue Date: August 2, 1948
City: Niagara Falls, NY
Quantity: 113,474,500
Printed by: Bureau of Engraving and Printing
Printing Method: Rotary Press
Perforations:
11 x 10 1/2
Color: Blue
 
U.S. #961 commemorates 100 years of U.S. friendship with Canada. The stamp pictures the old Niagara Railway Suspension Bridge. This bridge was replaced by a double-decker suspension bridge in 1855 and later the Whirlpool Rapids Bridge in 1897.
 
The Niagara River and Niagara Falls
A spectacular natural wonder, Niagara Falls is located on the Niagara River between the Great Lakes of Erie and Ontario. The Niagara River forms the border between the U.S. and Canada. There are two waterfalls, the Horseshoe Falls, which is in Canada, and the American Falls, which is in New York. About 10 million people visit Niagara Falls each year.
 
The Horseshoe Falls is the most dramatic – 85% of the Niagara River’s water flows over it. Horseshoe Falls is 167 feet high and about 2,600 feet wide. The American Falls is 176 feet high and about 1,000 feet wide.
 
Over the years, the United States and Canada have reached many agreements over the management of the Niagara River and Niagara Falls. Bridges crossing the Niagara River serve as reminders of the excellent relations between the two nations.
