This postcard features a blue toned image of a house on Peace Street in Canton, Mississippi. The house, a two story farmhouse style home, is located on the right side of the street. Trees line the street just past the house and utility poles line the right side of the street. The title of the card is printed along the bottom left of the image. The back of the card is addressed to Mrs. R. G. Frost in Ferguson, Missouri. The postmark is too smudged to read and a green, one cent postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner. An inscription is written sideways on the left half of the card. [see transcription field]
Just a glimps of the lovely streets here that I have simply lived on when not in auto on the wonderful graveled roads. Have learned to knit sweaters Hope this finds all well. Will be home next week all good things come to an end Tuesday. Julia [sic]
