This black and white postcard features a group of oyster schooners on the open water with their sails open. An inscription is handwritten around the center schooner and the signature is written across the sails of the center schooner. The title along the lower left reads "Oysters Schooners, Biloxi, Miss." The back of the postcard identifies the item as postcard and provides publisher information as well as indication for address placement. A green one cent postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked Biloxi, Mississippi, April 30, 1908. The card is addressed to Miss Florence Burrow in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Hello Florence. What do you think has happened. I am so slow about answering your card. I am sure you must feel quite proud now that you are aunt. How is the little baby? Were you very much afraid during the cyclone? You were like us fortunate not to get much of it. With love Paula Would you enjoy a cruise on one of these? From Paula Ans. very soon.
