This postcard features a color illustration of the Hospital for Insane in Jackson, Mississippi, a series of buildings, the primary one being a three story building with six columns across the front and a cupola on the roof. The other buildings are smaller with smaller cupolas. A dense line of trees are in front of the buildings, partially obscuring them from view. The title of the card is printed along the upper left of the image and "Sunday Sep. 19/09 12:20 am North Bound" is written beneath the title.
