  • Notes 
    • Twenty years before Hydro was ever heard of, when about the only thing ordinary people knew about Niagara was that the water ran down and not up the falls, William Moreland, then Blacksmith, told them at Jardine's that some day they would be running their plant by electricity generated at Niagara Falls.
