This postcard features a color illustration of the two story, red brick school house in Canton, Mississippi. The school house has arched windows and a balcony on the second story and a cupola in the center of the roof. Other buildings can be seen on the right edge of the image and some tree limbs are in the upper corners of the image. The title of the card is printed in the upper right of the image. The back of the card is addressed to Miss F. Ripley in San Antonio, Texas. The card is postmarked Canton, Miss., though the date is not visible. A green, one cent Benjamin Franklin postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner. An inscription is written sideways on the left half of the card. [see transcription field]
Many, many thanks for the lovely new year rememberance. It was certainly thoughtful of you to think of me so sweet away. With lots of love, and a kiss from the baby. Lovingly, Freda [sic]
