Description

This color postcard features a large five story hotel with white railings and trim. Dormers line the rooftop. A small, bare tree is in the center of the courtyard and building with a tower and a smoke stack is to the left. The title along the bottom of the postcard identifies the building as "West Wing of Great Southern Hotel, Gulfport, Miss." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides indication for correspondence, address, and postage stamp placement. Damage spots are in each corner, presumably glue spots from having been removed from a scrapbook.
