Charles Richard Weld A Vacation Tour in the United States and Canada (London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1855), p.179.
 
A brisk trade in Indian ornaments and curiosities is carried on at Niagara. Daguerreotypes of the American fall are in great request; the proper thing, according to Yankee notions, being for the purchaser to stand prominently in the foreground while the impression is taken. Until I visited Niagara, I was at a loss to understand why all daguerreotype views should generally represent the American fall; but the ground is so violently agitated on the Canadian side as to render the operation of the camera extremely unsatisfactory, at least all the results I saw were very poor. Recent improvements in photography will, however, I have no doubt, give better effects.
