Scope of Collection
The Daniel Dumych Collection contains over a thousand photographs as well as other documents relating to the history of the hydro-electric power industry in Niagara Falls, NY. Many of the photos are rare, never-before-seen images of the interiors, exteriors and surrounding areas of the power plants, canals and other infrastructure built to generate and deliver electricity in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This is a representative sample from the collection.
