This black and white photograph features the War Memorial Building in Jackson, Mississippi, a two-story square flat-roofed limestone block building in classic art deco style. The facade has a wide central opening leading into a central courtyard. The opening is supported by square columns with stylized capitals embellished with faces. Statues of various soldiers are to the right of the columns. "Peace Shall Come to Those Who Strive for Peace" is carved into the stone above the columns. The title of the photograph is printed in a text box at the bottom of the image.
