備考 Photographer and tightrope walker Samuel J. Dixon, of Toronto, walked the high wire over Niagra on September 6th 1890. Wearing brown tights, black silk trunks, and his "lucky" Civil War cap, Dixon walked a seven-eigths inch wire over the Niagara River Gorge, above the most turbulent portion of the Whirlpool Rapids. His sixteen-foot-long balancing pole was made up of three pieces of gas pipe. After crossing from the Canadian side to the American side, on his return walk he further thrilled the crowd by standing on one foot, lying on the rope with the pole resting on his chest, and hanging from the wire by one hand.
