Trees and a green lawn surround the building. The tile of the card is printed along the bottom left of the image. The back of the card is addressed to Miss Lorena Duling in Nashville, Tennessee. The card is postmarked Jackson, Miss., August 6, 1907 and a green, one cent Benjamin Franklin postage stamp is placed upside down in the upper right corner. An inscription is written sideways on the left half of the card. [see transcription field]
