World Famous Tree House

World Famous Tree House
A tall photo for the Vintage Photos Theme Park.

Signs: "World Famous Tree House. Believe It or Not. Fraternal Monarch." "Visitors Welcome. Entrance."

Caption: "#721 Lilley Redwood Park, Redwood Highway."

A tall photo of a tall tree. This photo is twice the usual length of a real photo postcard (although this isn't a postcard--the back is blank), and the tree itself is over 250 feet tall. Named the "Fraternal Monarch," the redwood tree has a hollow base big enough to contain a gift shop. After Robert Ripley featured it in his nationally syndicated Believe It or Not! cartoon in 1933, the unique tree was billed as the "World Famous Tree House."

For more informtion, see the Roadside America article about the World Famous Tree House, Piercy, California.

See also a cropped version of the photo for a better view of the base of the tree.

Wow! Wonder if it's still standing?
I like that it's on a very long card.
