5¢ Niagara Falls Bridge - US #297 Unused
Save 50% off our regular price
In 1901 the bridge at Niagara Falls, New York was the largest single span steel bridge ever constructed in the entire world! Known as the Honeymoon Bridge, it collapsed in January 1938 after ice cascaded over the falls and hit the bridge abutments. The Pan-American Exposition series, America's first bi-colored commemoratives, showed the world many of the technological advances achieved by the turn of the century. They were on sale at post offices for only six months, during the dates the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo was open.
