Comments:
by Austin Sprake:
Superb colourful view of the famous falls. 

by Geoffrey Godden:
This imposing landscape view shows the famous Niagara Falls. The title is woven into the picture near the bottom right-hand corner of the silk. This is a rather late issue, the registered number 376240 being found, but rarely, stamped on the reverse of the card-mount, indicating the date of registration 1 July 1901. The title was first included on label 31+39 and examples are normally affixed to the untitled card-mount E2

Other comments:
Godden mentions the registration number being printed on the card-mount. It is sometimes woven into the silk too, toward the left hand side, as RD: 376240, giving a date of 1st July 1901.
