Description

This black and white picture postcard features the highway and utility poles that run beside the beach. Piers are seen in the water. The title along the bottom of the card identifies the scene as "East End Beach Drive" and the area to the right of the image identifies the place as "Biloxi, Miss." An inscription is written the empty whit space to the right of the image. The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides indication for address placement. A green one cent postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked three times. The first postmark is Biloxi, Mississippi, February 17, 1906 and the second and third postmarks are double postmarks for Cincinnati, Ohio February 18, 1906. The card is addressed to Mrs. Chas A. Barndt in Cincinnati, Ohio.
