This color postcard features a river with trees and a bank on either side with people standing on the river's edge. There appears to be a platform on the far side of the river. The title in the upper right reads "Jackson, Mississippi--Pearl River." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides indication for correspondence and address placement. A green one cent postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked Muscatine, Iowa, April 11, 1913.
