Description

This postcard features a black and white image of the courthouse in Canton, Mississippi though much of the courthouse building is obscured by trees with only the bottom of the front entrance pillars and the windows on the right side visible. The courthouse yard is surrounded by an iron fence at the sidewalk and a utility pole and utility lines are prominent in the foreground of the image. "Court House" is written in white in the lower left edge of the image and "Canton Miss" is written in the lower right edge. The back of the card is addressed to Mr. James M. Edwards in Iron City, Illinois. The card is postmarked Canton, Miss., November 14, 1908 and a green, one cent Benjamin Franklin postage stamp is placed in the upper corner. An inscription is written on the left half of the card. [see transcription field]
