"Bridal Veil Falls, Yosemite" dress silk, Mallinson's National Parks Series
- In late 1926 American silk manufacturer H.R. Mallinson & Co. introduced a bold new line of printed silks, twelve landscape designs, each available in from eight to twelve colorways (color combinations) on three different ground fabrics. The designs celebrated America's National Parks - then only a decade old. The designs represented all the usual styles necesssary for making clothing: allover prints, horizontal stripes, checks, a border design. This overall design depicts Bridal Veil Falls at Yosemite National Park, on Mallinson's trademark Pussy Willow silk. The firm donated two different colorways of this design, one with a tan ground and one with a green ground. .
