This black and white postcard features a large concrete fountain pool with a sidewalk leading up to a large white three story building. The building features arched or rounded windows on the top floor and a flag flying from the center of the roof. Trees and shrubs line the fountain and the building. Other buildings can be seen behind the central building. The title "Office Building Gulf [and] Ship Island Railroad, Gulfport, Miss." is along the bottom of the image. A handwritten inscription is written beneath the title. The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides indication for address placement. A green one cent postage stamp is placed sideways in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked Gulfport, Mississippi, September 24, 1905. The card is addressed to Carrier #2 in Biloxi, Mississippi.
Well be with you soon. #3
