This black and white postcard features the panoramic beach view of Inn-By-The-Sea. The title along the bottom reads "A Delightful Inn and Cottages Among the Pines and Moss-Hung Live oaks Beside the Emerald Waters of the Gulf of Mexico--Inn-by-the-Sea, Pass Christian, Miss." The description on the back of the card reads "The Inn-by-the-Sea, mid-way between New Orleans and Mobile, facing the Gulf of Mexico with a private white sand bathing beach not separated from the water's edge by a public road. In the center of a sixty-acre estate landscaped with semi-tropical shrubs, a nine-hole sporty mashie golf course, as well as tennis courts, boating, bathing and fishing available to our guests. The cuisine of the Inn is unexcelled." "Write for rates and literature. Inn-by-the-Sea I. T. Rhea, Owner Pass Christian, Mississippi" is below the description.
