Saguaro Light Stand, Phoenix, 1940
Of all the plants in the Sonoran Desert, the saguaro has come to define its character and especially its tourist industry. This photo, taken by Farm Service Administration photographer Lee Russell during the Depression, captures the import of the saguaro as a symbol just before World War II.
