This is one of my favourite cards that I've received so far, and the favourite card from the USA for sure. I am planing to start waterfall cards collection, so this would be a great beginning.
The Niagara Falls, located on the Niagara River, is the collective name for the Horseshoe Falls and the adjacent American Falls along with the comparatively small Bridal Veil Falls, which combined form the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world  and has a vertical drop of more than 50 meters. 
Niagara Falls also forms the international border between Canada and the USA.

The Niagara Falls are very tourist destination visited by thousands of tourists every year. It is interesting that Nikola Tesla, half Sebian-half Croatian, worked there.When Nikola Tesla, for whom a memorial was later built at Niagara Falls, New York, U.S.A., invented three-phase system of alternating current power transmission, distant transfer of electricity became possible, as Westinghouse and Tesla had built the AC-power Ames Hydroelectric Generating Plant and proved it effective.
An amazing card sent to my by CaptainSoul with many nice stamps. Thanks, Captain!
