Framed Photograph of an Orange Grove

Description (Brief)
This photograph of an orange grove is one of forty-nine framed black and white photographic prints bequeathed to the Smithsonian by William F. Bucher of Washington, D.C. Bucher, a cabinetmaker, framed each photograph in wood of the same species as the tree depicted in the print. The photos were displayed in a special exhibition, Our Trees and their Woods at the United States National Museum in 1931.
The tree depicted in this photograph was located in Florida and the image was made by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The frame is made of quarter-inch Florida orange wood on chestnut, with a back bead of rosewood and a glass bead of African padauk.
