This postcard features a black and white image of St. Colund's Episcopal Chapel in Jackson, Mississippi. The chapel is a one story building with a wide, ivy covered tower in the center above the entrance. Trees and ivy obscure the view of the chapel and the grass is tall in front. The title of the card is printed in the upper left of the image. The back of the card is addressed to Miss Rosa Moody in Crystal Springs, Mississippi. The card is postmarked twice: Jackson, Miss., February 1908 and Crystal Springs, Miss., February 1908. A green, one cent Benjamin Franklin postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner. An inscription is written on the left half of the card. [see transcription field]
