Twin Falls ID: Shoshone Falls and pumping station - 1910. Sometimes called the Niagara of the West, Shoshone Falls is 36 feet higher than Niagara Falls and flows over a rim 900 feet wide. Brady Stewart and three friends went to Idaho on a lark from 1909 thru early 1912. As part of the Mondell Homestead Act, they received a land grant of 160 acres north of the Snake River. For 2 ½ years, Brady Stewart photographed the adventures of farming along with the spectacular landscapes.
