Description

This postcard features a color illustration of the Mississippi Governors' Mansion in Jackson, Mississippi, a two-story masonry structure painted white, basically rectangular in plan. Its front facade is five bays wide, each bay articulated by pilasters with scrolled capitals; bays on the side elevations are separated by doubled pilasters. The center bay is larger, and is fronted by a two-story half-round portico supported by four columns. A full entablature encircles the building, ending in dental molding on the cornice below the roof line. An iron fence runs in front of the mansion and two trees at the fence line "frame" the mansion. The title is printed along the bottom edge of the card with an inscription written over it. The inscription reads "Many thanks for post card it is beautiful Will send you on from New Orleans" [sic] And "M. B. C." is written in the upper left of the image. The back of the card is addressed to Miss Emily Boyd in Portland, Maine. The card is postmarked Jackson, Miss., November 2, 1906 and a green, one cent Benjamin Franklin postage stamp is placed upside down in the upper right corner.
