Amboy Shoe, Sock, and Lingerie Trees
submitted by “BooinLA”
You may have seen the Highway 50 Shoe Tree here a few weeks ago. Now, Boo brings us a “Garment Tree Trifecta” in Amboy, California!
Sadly the Amboy Shoe Tree has collapsed. There are many images available through Google image search if you’d like to see it in its former glory. ***If you have older pictures when the “tree” was still standing tall, please feel free to share them with me!
Rumor has it, that somewhere near me (in York, Pennsylvania) there is a “Jockstrap Tree” …. I’m not sure if I want to locate it or not 🙂
A couple hundred yards east of Roy’s Cafe lie the remains of the Amboy Shoe Tree. It has collapsed from weather, age, and possibly the weight of all those shoes, but its carcass is still clad in discarded footwear. I love those pink pumps. Someone brought them all the way out to the desert just to leave them here, ya know? Funny.
However, another mile and a half east, there’s another attempt at another article of clothing …
I think the desert sun may have addled some brains in this part of California’s barren east, but hey, it’s amusing 🙂
