This color postcard features beach chairs and beach huts on a beach with water in the foreground and a hotel in the background. The title along the top of the card reads "Private Sand Beach in Front of the Inn-By-The-Sea, Pass Christian, Miss." 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 Pass Christian, Mississippi, March 25, 1941. The description in the upper left reads "Inn By the Sea--I. T. Rhea, Owner--A delightful Inn and cottages among the pines and moss-hung live oaks, beside the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico, open every day in the year." The card is inscribed and is addressed to Mrs. Noble Crandall in Pepperell, Massachusetts.
This is where we have just had luncheon. The trip is proving just grand in every one's estimation.
