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 in the upper right identifies the image as "Office Building G. & S. I. R. R. Co., Gulfport, Miss." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides indication for correspondence and address placement. A green one cent postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked June 1, 1907, with an illegible location. The card is inscribed and is addressed to Miss Maud Ellis in Mobile, Alabama.
I received your postal and Jims also. Will write later. I went to the S. Rink last night and saw S. P. P. and G. H. B. answer soon with much love from all. Loretta Rabby [sic]
