1. Nikola Tesla Monument within Queen Victoria Park.... The Tesla Society of New York's page for the Tesla monument at Niagara Falls. Includes numerous photos of the monument's dedication ceremony. At nearly the very bottom of the page is a photograph of an historical marker commemorating the initial operations of Thomas Edison's electical power plant in New York in 1882, which would seemingly belie both claims that the Tesla-engineered power plant at Niagara was the "first hydroelectic power plant" (Tesla Society) or the "world's first hydroelectic power system" (Tesla marker).
