This color postcard features a distant side view of the Bay St. Louis City Hall. A large oak tree is in the foreground and a building is in the background. People are depicted walking the sidewalks beside City Hall and a man is depicted crossing the street to the side of the building. The drawing appears to be black and white except for the soft blue in the sky; the title in the top left corner reads "City Hall, Bay St. Louis." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard. A green one cent postage stamp is in the top right corner and a postmark dated Aug. 18, 1936 partially covers the stamp. The card is inscribed and is addressed to Mrs. R.M. Hamilton, Glenford, Ohio. "3.00" is written in pencil in the middle of the card.
