Description

This postcard is a color illustration of Smith Park in Jackson, Mississippi, showing the sidewalk that leads between the playground equipment and trees of the park. A gazebo is situated behind some trees and a swing set on the left and a church is seen behind some trees, park benches, and a swing set on the right. A man in a dark suit and hat is depicted standing on the sidewalk. The title of the card is printed along the bottom left edge of the card. The back of the card is addressed to Master Earl M. in Long Beach. The card is postmarked 1923 and an inscription is written on the left half of the card.
