GREEN TREE - VICTORVILLE, CALIFORNIA - The Green Tree Inn and Country Club is one of the most popular in the Victorville area. Here where settlers pushed west a hundred years ago, a land where inland Indians walked to trade with the coast Indians on the Santa Ana River near the present town of Colton, a land where the Mormon Battalion, under Capt. Hunt in 1851 settled in the San Bernardino Valley, golfers play golf or relax alongside the pool. The area was once known as Morman Crossing around the 1880's later to be called Victor only to change to Victorville. From 1914 to 1937 over 200 western pictures were filmed here.

Editors Note: The photograph for the Green Tree postcard was taken by Merle Porter. He also wrote all the text for his postcards. He was a one man postcard production company producing and distributing millions of cards over a 50 year career.

Known as "The Postcard King of the West," Porter was on the road at least 9 months a year, distributing cards to remote motels, gas stations and souvenir shops, while constantly shooting images for new cards with his 4x5 Speed Graphic camera.
