dc.description.abstractThe article discusses the beauty of Queen Victoria Park and the recent Commissioners' Report which included "numerous illustrations, giving some of the most striking views both of the Falls and of the park...". Also mentioned, is the work of the ex-Governor-General, Lord Dufferin, "In the summer of 1878, on the occasion of a casual meeting with the then Governor of the State of New York, Lord Dufferin suggested joint action by the Government of that State and the Government of Ontario in order to rescue this glorious wonder of nature from the clutches of the vandals who, for their sordid purposes, were rapidly destroying all the natural beauties of the scene... On the 2nd of March, 1880, a memorial signed by nearly seven hundred literary and scientific men in England, the United States and Canada, was presented simultaneously to the Governor-General of Canada and the Governor of the State of New York, invoking the united action of both in carrying out Lord Dufferin's proposal."en_US
