This postcard features two black and white images of the Spinning Wheel, a restaurant in Jackson, Mississippi. The image in the upper left corner depicts the statue of a Black woman in a dress and apron with the sign "Minnie Bell: Good Food" near the side of the road. The large image shows the exterior of the restaurant, a white, mid-century modern style restaurant with the sign across the top of it that reads "Restaurant Curb Service" and a large sign on top of the building that has the image of a spinning wheel in the center and the wording "Steaks Chicken Restaurant Fine Foods" around the spinning wheel image. A paragraph advertising the restaurant is printed in the upper left on the back of the card that reads "The Spinning Wheel--A Modern Restaurant 16 1/2 miles South of Jackson, Miss., on Hi-Way 51. Mural Paintings in the Dining Room, Showing Scenes of the Old South. Make Dining Here a Delightful Experience."
