The top half of the building is red brick and the bottom half is tan brick. A sidewalk leads to the entrance and trees and bushes partially obscure the building. The title of the card is printed on the upper left of the image. The back of the postcard is addressed to Mr. and Mrs. W. G. Timson at South Bend, Indiana. The card is postmarked Tougaloo, Miss., Dec. 8, 1918 and two green, one cent George Washington postage stamps are placed in the upper right corner. An inscription is written sideways on the left half of the card. [see transcription field]
Tougaloo Miss. Dec. 8, 1918 Dear Folks:-I received your letter yesterday, and was glad to hear from you. The weather report was interesting as it has been quite warm here since Wednesday. Yesterday I went to Jackson and was really hot, although I had removed some of my heavy clothing before going and wore my dark blue dress but had on my winter cloak. Will write more later. With love, Mildred.
