treeTaken from ‘The Sunday Strand’ of 1903.

‘All the men in this remarkable photograph are standing on the foot of the trunk of the biggest tree in that country of monster trees, California. It belongs to the genus Sequoia, and has just been discovered. It is computed that this tree is 4,000 years old, and it is nearly 400ft high, that is, nearly as high as the cross of St Paul’s.’
