Description

This postcard features a sepia toned image of a crowd of people gathered on the bank of Lake Chautauqua in Crystal Springs, Mississippi. Two boats with people aboard are docked at the bank and a building and trees are seen behind the people. "Lake Chautauqua" is written in faded ink in the lower right corner of the image. The back of the postcard is addressed to E. H. Sojourner in Slidell, Louisiana. The card is postmarked Crystal Springs, Mississippi, January 27, 1908 and Slidell, Louisiana, January 29. Only the bottom edge of a green postage stamp remains in the upper right corner though "a kiss" is written in the box where the stamp had been. An inscription is written sideways on the left half of the card. [see transcription field]
