Caption: Niagara Falls power station. Historical image showing the interior of the Niagara Falls power station, with turbines and generators used to produce electricity from the energy of the large amounts of water passing over the waterfalls. Niagara Falls are a set of large waterfalls on the US-Canada border (between New York and Ontario), forming part of the Niagara River. Built by the Cataract Company, this hydroelectric power station opened in 1895. One of the consultants employed by the Cataract Company was Serb-US physicist and electrical engineer Nikola Tesla (1856-1943).
