Description

This color postcard features a three story light colored building with white moldings and a sign over the front entrance identifying it as a post office. Early twentieth century cars are parked in front. The title along the bottom of the card reads "Post Office, Long Beach, Mississippi." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides publisher information. A red two cent postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked Biloxi, Mississippi, February 15, 1934. The card is inscribed and is addressed to Mrs. John Robinson in Jamaica, Vermont. A description in the upper left reads "Post Office--Delightful climate, salt water sports and both salt and fresh water fishing make Long Beach, Miss., a fine vacation spot."

Transcription

Thanks for the Valentine and pictures. We like the scenery down here better, tho. The Mission Hall is upstairs in the building. Had a nice letter from Beverly. Cliff is going up to the airport in the morning. We are hoping for good luck. Mashed potatoes last night with my mixer. Came out good. Will write again soon. Love E. C. [sic]
