This black and white postcard features a large three story white building with a porch and second story balcony that runs the length of the front of the building. The porch and balcony have white railings and intricate trim details. The third floor consists of dormer windows that line the roof. A covered front stoop is at the entrance. Bushes line the front of the building and a group of people are lined up along the bushes. The title in the lower left identifies the building as "St. Joseph's Academy, Bay St. Louis, Miss." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides indication for address and postage stamp placement. An inscription is handwritten in French.
