3) Postmarked Aug 27, 1912. Caption reads:  Trolley line through the Gorge, Niagara Falls. The ruggedness and picturesqueness of nature about Niagara Falls has been seriously modified by the arts of man, the latest invasion being the construction of a trolley line through the Gorge, starting at Prospect Park and passing close to the Whirlpool Rapids and the River until it reaches Queenstown Heights.

4)  Postmarked Jul 10, 1912. Caption reads:  A ride on the trolley line through the Gorge at Niagara Falls is one of the sensations of pleasure and surprise, which sometimes approached trepidation, as towering rocks, looming threateningly over the tracks cut through the bluffs, produce a feeling of insecurity.
