This black and white photograph features the five story post office in Jackson, Mississippi. The building is square with street lamps on either end of the front entrance. "United States Post Office and Court House" is engraved across the front of the building between the fourth and fifth stories. The title of the image is printed on the top right of the image. A brief description of Jackson is printed on the upper left of the back of the card and reads "Jackson, the capitol city of the state, and the county seat of Hinds County, was named in honor of General Andrew Jackson. It is located on the Pearl River, 45 miles east of Vicksburg, in a productive cotton section and not far distant is the long-leaf pine region."
