Drawing of the top of a palm tree. This public domain tree image was part of a collage of images. The trunk of the tree had a small floral image that effectively put this tree in the background. I could see this palm tree drawing being used at the top of a beach photo to bring the photo onto the page to create something a bit more interesting than just a photo album.
There were so many wonderful illustrations in Hill’s Album of Biography and Art. The 1882 work by Thomas E. Hill has provided more vintage illustrations for Reusable Art than probably any other resource I’ve found.
This image is copyright free and in the public domain anywhere that extends copyrights 70 years after death or at least 120 years after publication when the original illustrator is unknown.
