Excellent set of souvenir cards published by Niagara Playing Card Company, featuring beautiful pictures of Niagara Falls taken more than 100 years ago. Those familiar with the Falls and the rapids leading to them will notice differences.

The deck has 52 cards, plus 1 terrific Joker, and the backs depict an Indian brave hunting an American bison. The cards are wide, measuring 90mm x 63mm, and come in the original telescope type box.

The cards are in excellent condition, lightly used given their age. The Joker has a slight nibble along the bottom edge, and a slight stain along the top edge, but there are no other issues. The inner box is in excellent condition, but the outer box, while clean, has separated along one edge and a crease on a slight diagonal on the front.

Reference: Dawson, The Hochman Encyclopedia of American Playing Cards, p.258, S40.
