This black and white postcard features a dirt road with tall pine trees on the right with a small cabin beyond the pines. A log fence runs in front of the trees. Two other houses among trees sit behind a wood slat fence on the left side of the road. The photographer/publisher is listed in the lower left of the card and the title in the lower right reads "The Road to "Sacred Heart" Long Beach, 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 Gulfport, Mississippi, August 8, 1913. The card is inscribed and is addressed to Miss Edyth Ott in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Was very glad to hear you had arrived safe and sound, we miss you very much, sorry your stay was so short, we have had a great deal of rain since you left--the folks have not done much crabbing and it is too rough for fishing, you may come again before we leave. Love from Mamie [sic]
