This black and white postcard features a long front porch with white box columns and white porch railing. Four rocking chairs and three benches are placed on the porch and the house's windows and shutters are visible. Trees are seen beyond the porch. The title along the bottom of the card identifies the scene as "Porch and Gallery at 'Beauvoir' " Last Home of Jefferson Davis Midway between Biloxi and Gulfport, Miss."
