This color postcard features a view of a street with tall buildings on either side. Early twentieth century cars and horse drawn buggies are parked on the side of the street and people are walking the sidewalks. The title in the upper right identifies the scene as "Capitol Street, looking West, Jackson, Miss." An inscription is written across the sky over the street. The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides indication for correspondence and address placement. A green one cent postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked Jackson, Mississippi, January 15, 1910. The card is inscribed and is addressed to Mr. A. E. Daggett in Los Angeles, California.
