Black and white photograph of a residential street lined with American elms prior to destruction by Dutch elm disease. This image was used in an article for The Morton Arboretum Quarterly, volume 29, number 4 (December 1993), titled "Developing Better Elms: The Plant-resistance Component of Integrated Pest Management." The caption for the image reads:
Before the late 1950s, the streets of many American cities, like the one shown here, were lined with American elms. The beautiful cathedral-like avenues were devastated by Dutch elm disease.
