"Never say there is nothing beautiful in the world anymore. There is always something to make you wonder in the shape of a tree, the trembling of a leaf."
-Albert Schweitzer

Once upon a time in America, there were huge and magnificent leafy Elm trees that shaded every neighborhood, lined every city street and graced every public park like giant lush green canopies. The world was a far more delightful place because of the Elms.

I'm old enough to remember them and old enough to still shed a silent tear over their tragic loss.
Dutch Elm Disease destroyed all of the stately Elm trees all over new England in the Sixties and into the early Seventies in every city, town, park and neighborhood, they were all cut down. Every last one.

As a child I was simply horrified to witness our town's beautiful old Elms being destroyed.
After all of the trees were removed and the tree cutters moved to the next stand of Elms in the next town. Our little town looked like a crime scene for many years afterward.

Here's what an Elm tree looked like for those of you too young to remember. They really were something else. I sure do miss them.

What a delightful vintage find. This wonderful original children's lithograph print from 1927 is absolutely perfect; flat and smooth... without dings or bumps. The 7" x 9" paper is a lovely quality too; finished with a soft sheen. It's in amazing fresh and vibrant condition too, considering it's 84 years old.

Matted, framed and displayed as a gallery grouping, these wonderful vintage book prints are simply spectacular. (Please note that the framed examples in the last photo are just to show how this might look when it's framed. Your print will come unframed.)

Surrender Dorothy offers a non-stop jaw-dropping cornucopia of frame-worthy antique and vintage prints, ads, drawings, sketches, plans, lithos, engravings, posters, maps, charts and illustrations of all kinds to adorn every room in your happy home. Terrific finds to gussy up your workplace too.
