Joshua Tree, California

This image shows an ancient Joshua Tree plant. Its age is indicated by the thickness of the trunk and the multitude of ‘arms’ or branches that have grown from it over the decades. 

There is no description on the back of the card.

These are part of the yucca genus, and flower most often when there is sufficient rain. Their branches develop after flowering.

This image likely dates from the 1940s.
