Description

This post card illustrates an enormous tree, specifically a Banyan tree, with large branches extending over a sidewalk.
Because this post card is from the 1940's, or earlier because the postmark is from 1940 but it may not have necessarily been created in 1940, the post card paper appears to be an off-white color instead of its original white.

Printed Text (Back)

The Banyan Tree is native to tropical Africa and India, but grows well in many other regions free from frost. It is a vigorous, rapid grower. New roots grow down from the horizontal branches, and these, after being established in the soil, serve as accessory trunks, so that the tree may extend laterally almost indefinitely, sometimes reaching a diameter of several hundred feet, and individual tree resembling a small grove.
