This pattern celebrates Annie Taylor, who became the first person to plunge over the Niagara Falls in a barrel.
On 24th October 1901, the plucky pensioner celebrated turning 63 years old in an unusual manner. She clambered into her barrel, accompanied only by a lucky heart-shaped pillow, and braced herself for the journey of a lifetime.
Taylor flew off the edge of the roaring waterfall and plummeted into the waters below. Remarkably, she achieved her extraordinary feat unscathed.
The droplets on this pattern celebrate the boundary-breaking fearlessness of this unconventional daredevil who knew that nothing was impossible.
