From Unusual Life:
Shown: Walter Dymond, groundskeeper of Harold Lloyd’s estate, Greenacres, with the Lloyd Christmas Tree. Dymond was responsible for the construction of the Christmas tree from two trees (wiring the branches of one into the other), and placement of the ornaments where Mr Lloyd directed. Harold and his wife Mildred decorated it every year from Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve, and collected thousands of ornaments for it from all over the world. It was 20 feet tall, 9 feet wide and almost 30 feet around. The tree was fire-proofed and remained up all year. – (1972)
