LR where's that other pic below the CN Tower, Eaton Center?

It was a smaller place filled with things like this:




I have an idea this was the one used by a 62 year old school mistress who was concerned about living in poverty. She survived, unlike most of the adventurers, but made almost no money from her bravery.



But the ball went over here:

And here's the little church. Bruv and SIL walk up the road to it, and even give it a bit of TLC on a Saturday.

Ahhh..Nagger Falls. Remember that kid that went over the Horseshoe Falls armed with nothing more than a life jacket? Back in the 1980's I think. There were three people in an outboard motor boat and the shear pin on the prop broke and the boat capsized just above the island. If memory serves, a fireman from New Jersey caught one kid just before she went over, the moron in charge of the motor was never found and the second kid was rescued by the Maid Of The Mist at the bottom.
