Description

This color postcard features a view of a well lit street at night. Neon signs on the buildings read "Kress", "W. Woolworth Co.", "Wards", "Hotel Waltham", "Hotel", "Paramount", and Busch. A "no parking" sign is in the lower right corner of the image. Mid-century cards are parked on the sides of the street. The back of the postcard identifies the image as "Capitol Street at Night, Jackson Mississippi. Looking East, along Capitol Street" and provides publisher, photographer, and printer information as well as indication for postage stamp placement. Several iconic southern images such as the Biloxi Lighthouse, steamboats, and a couple dressed in antebellum clothing line the left corner edges. The logo for "A Deep South Card" is in the top center.
