Book containing samples of all of the textile cloth produced in the Rosamond Woolen Company Mill. According to former worker Mervin Tosh, the samples were taken from the rolls of new cloth before they were stored in the warehouse.

The book was kept by long time warehouse supervisor Mr. N. Hogg. Two volunteers, Herb Pragnell and Gunner Laartunen, found the sample book in 1995. They were working in a dead space above the museum office where it had been stored. The reason for the unusual location remains a mystery.
