Lowman, Hubert A.
This postcard features a color image of Capitol Street in Jackson, Mississippi showing St. Andrew's Episcopal Church and the Lamar Life Insurance Company building on the right and the Old Capitol building in the distance. Both the Episcopal Church and the Lamar building are gothic style buildings with the Lamar building being a large, white structure with a clock tower in the front and the church being a red, brick structure with ivy growing up the bell tower and over some of the arched entrances. Cars are pictured stopped at the stoplight on either direction and a man is pictured crossing the street at the intersection. Trees are seen on the left side of the street. The back of the card is addressed to Mrs. Georgia Turner in Flemington, New Jersey. The card is postmarked Rayville, Louisiana, August 5, 1960 and a purple Statue of Liberty postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner. A description of the image on the card is printed on the top left side of the card and an inscription is written beneath it. [see transcription]
