This postcard features a black and white image of people and a horse drawn buggy at the entrance to the Mississippi Chautauqua campgrounds in Crystal Springs, Mississippi. A sign between two spike columns reads "Mississippi Chautauqua" and the columns are flanked by white picket fencing. Cabins or buildings are seen beyond the entrance among trees. An inscription is written across the top between the trees of the image and along the bottom edge. The back of the card is addressed to Mrs. Rosa Moody Sojourner in Ladonia, Texas. The card is postmarked Crystal Springs, Miss., April 24, 1911 and a green, one cent postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner. An inscription is written sideways on the left half of the card.
