Tasmania started issuing a set of scenic stamps in 1899, including two stamps depicting waterfalls, first issued in 1900. They were the 4d Russell Falls and 6d Dilston Falls.

There is an interesting story attached to the so-called Dilston Falls. Check out pages 218-222 in this link:

The International Railway Bridge, which carries a railway line across the Niagara River between Fort Erie, Ontario and Buffalo, New York, was built in 1873 for the International Bridge Company by Polish engineer and lawyer Sir Kazimierz Stanislaus Gzowski, KCMG (1813-1898), and D.L. MacPherson. Here is an image of a semi-postal souvenir sheet featuring a portrait of Gzowski, who also served as acting Lieutenant Governor of Ontario from 1896 to 1897, and a depiction of Niagara Falls, printed by photogravure, and issued by Poland on June 6, 1978 to publicize the Canadian International Philatelic Exhibition (CAPEX), held in Toronto June 9-18, Scott No. B135.
