Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
Photograph caption dated May 29, 1930 reads, "Patty Willis is pictured in a cactus garden, species from which will be displayed in the show, the first large show of its kind. The spire-like cactus and those that look like inverted Indian clubs are sahuaros [sic]. The bush-like growth is an octillo [sic]. The society, a national organization with headquarters in Los Angeles, is devoted to conservation of cacti and succulents, many species of which have become extinct through neglect." This was taken at a private residential garden, belonging to a Mrs. Meade.
