Framed Photograph of Pine Trees

Description (Brief)
These four photographs of pine trees are 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 upper left photo shows a white pine tree in the Adirondack Mountains of New York that was taken by A. Varela. The upper right photo is a loblolly pine from North Carolina taken by “Lindsey.” The lower left photo is of a longleaf pine tree near Ocilla, Georgia taken by E. Block. The bottom right photo shows a balsam pine and white spruce that was taken by H.H. Chapman. All photographs come courtesy of the U.S. Forest Service. The frame is made from four woods; the top is made of white pine, the bottom is made of long leaf pine, the left hand side of common pine, and the right side is made of spruce.
