5 Aluminium Trees

From 1959 to 1969, more than 1 million aluminum trees, mainly the flagship tree called Evergleam, were produced by Aluminum Specialty Company, of Manitowic, Wis.

The trees were made using a thin painted wooden trunk with holes drilled into it at angles. When the branches made of colored aluminum foil were placed in the holes, they formed a tree shape.

Quoted from: It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas (1958) From the newspaper: The Baltimore Sun  October 26, 2008 By Cassandra A. Fortin
