Photograph of Mertie West exiting the entrance to the elevator at Maid of the Mist in Niagara Falls. A driveway stretches across the foreground and into the mid-ground. Mertie West stands in the near distance at left. She walks towards the camera as she exits a hut housing the Maid of the Mist's elevator. The hut stands behind Mertie, along the left edge. It is viewed at an angle from the front. The building is constructed of stone and has a hipped roof. An arched lintel stretches over the building's wide doorway. The doors stand open behind Mertie and other visitors are visible inside the hut. Signage hanging below the roof's eave and above the lintel reads, "ELEVATORS TO FOOT OF FALLS 10[¢]," and "MAID OF THE MIST." Bushes line the perimeter of the driveway to the right of the hut and trees stand in the background.
Photograph of Mertie West standing behind a railing and looking out over Niagara Falls. Mertie West stands in the foreground, right-of-center. She stands, in profile, on the near side of a railing and looks to the left. The metal railing enters frame from left and stretches back on an angle to the right, terminating at a stone that sits along the right edge. Beyond the railing and to the left of Mertie, the Niagara River cascades over Horseshoe Falls (or Canadian Falls) at center and flows to the left, exiting frame. Distant banks of the Niagara River are visible in the far distance.
An out-of-focus and poorly-exposed photograph, from left to right, of H. H. West and Mertie West posing on a viewing platform at the Whirlpool Aero Car in Niagara Falls. They are viewed from a slight, worm's-eye perspective. A platform stretches along the bottom edge. At center, H. H. West and Mertie West look to the camera as they pose in front of a flagpole bearing the Canadian flag. An unidentified man at left stands on the platform as well, though slightly in front of the Wests. To the left and right of the Wests, the platform extends back towards viewing scopes that stand along the back edge of the platform. Awnings hover over the 2 viewing areas. The awning at left reads, "WHIRLPOOL," and the awning at right reads, "AERO CAR."
Photograph, from left to right, of Mertie West and H. H. West standing behind the railing of a viewing platform and overlooking the American Falls. The viewing platform spans the width of the bottom edge and stretches back to the mid-ground on a slight angle to the right. Railings line both the left edge and back edge of the platform. In the near distance at center, Mertie West and H. H. West stand to the right of the corner of the platform and on the near side of the guardrails. Both stand with their backs to the camera as they look out over the falls. A viewing scope stands on the corner of the platform, to the left of Mertie. The Niagara River enters frame in the near distance at right and flows over the American Falls at center, just ahead of the platform. A land form stands on the opposite bank of the Niagara River at right and center. In the distance, Rainbow Bridge extends from the land form at center and out-of-frame at left. From the foot of the falls, the Niagara River is visible flowing along the left edge, passing beneath the bridge.
