GLYCERINE "WATER" FALLS AT THE TOPANGA MALL

BUILDING A GREAT MUSEUM FOR THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY

Around 1967, the Topanga Mall installed a really interesting glycerine waterfall. Beads of glycerine, about the size of water drops, moved as if in slow motion down wires of mono-filament fishing lines. The effect was dramatic. No doubt the glycerine drops attracted dust resulting in real clogging problems. But, while the fountains last, they were exceptional.
