This postcard features a color illustration of the Standard Life Insurance Company Building in Jackson, Mississippi, a seven story building with a large sign on the roof that reads "Standard Life". Trees are in the grassy lawn in front of the building and colorful flowers are depicted lining each side of the sidewalks that lead to the building. A brief paragraph on the history of Jackson, Mississippi is printed in the upper left on the back of the card and it reads "In 1821 the state legislature ratified the selection of the site as the state capital, named it Jackson in honor of Andrew Jackson, and moved the state government here in 1822. The city played an important part during the War between the states and especially before and after the siege of Vicksburg."
