This color postcard features a view of a street busy with early twentieth century cars and lined with tall buildings and covered sidewalks on either side. People are walking along the sidewalks. The title along the top left identifies the area as "Capitol Street looking East, Jackson, Miss.--20" Postmark lines are across the stop of the card, partially covering the title. The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides publisher information. A green one cent postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked Jackson, Mississippi, August 27, 1929. The card is inscribed and is addressed to Miss Ruthie Abbott in Massachusetts.
Jackson, Miss. Aug. 27-1929 Here at noon today. Everything going fine. Not too hot. Roads mostly good thus far. Wonderful through the Carolinas. Both feeling well. Love [?]
