Lincoln Tree.

Tree Shaped like Abe Lincoln's Head

Found this vintage postcard, reconsidered our policy to not publish tips about trees shaped like people or animals (sorry, we still aren't interested in cloud shapes). After 50 years, we wonder whether the tree still has any resemblance to Lincoln (or is it now the "Lincoln With Acromegaly Oak"). Did the town attempt to trim the tree every year to maintain the claim?

The postcard caption reminds us that Albany, GA was also the Bird Dog Capital of the World, and the World's Greatest Paper Shell Pecan Center.
