This postcard features a color illustration of the Baptist Orphanage in Jackson, Mississippi, a large, brick, multilevel building on the left and a smaller, three story building on the right. The building on the left appears to have three sections. The first section is three stories with a four two story columns across the entrance, the middle section is two stories with a small entrance in the center, and the third section is three stories with rounded corners and a second story entrance with a set of steps leading to it. A tree partially obscures the right end of the building. A fence lines the sidewalk in front of the orphanage with a sidewalk that leads from the gate to a circular flowerbed that appears to be situated in front of the center portion of the building. The title of the card is along the upper left of the image.
