This black and white postcard features a two story white clapboard building with several other buildings and trees behind it. A marquee sign on the roof reads "Paradise Point" and signs on the side of the building read "40 Modern Cottages Paradise Point Office. A sign for "Office" hangs from a pole on the front and signs on the front gable reads "AAA" and "Ice". The title along the bottom of the card reads "Paradise Point Office and Lobby, U. S. 90 Gulfport, Miss."
Dear Aunt [and] Uncle Here is the cottage here at Paradise. We went through Dallas Texas. We are enjoying our trip as much. We have friends here. And all went out on the Gulf fishing yesterday. I will hate to go back to Hattiesburg again. Veronica and Luther
