This color postcard features two wood clapboard buildings at the turn of the twentieth century. The building in the foreground has a long porch with light colored railing along the length. Two wagons/carriages are parked in front of it. The second building is a two story structure with an Asian style "tower" on the left end that bears a sign reading "Biloxi Art Pottery." A white sign extends from the side of the building. A man in an apron is standing on the side of the street in front of the buildings. Tress and a powerline pole are behind the second building. The title along the bottom of the card reads "The Biloxi Pottery, Biloxi, Miss." An inscription is handwritten on the white space along the left edge of the card. The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides publisher information as well as indication for address placement. The green postage stamp in the upper right corner has been mostly removed, only two small bits remain. The card is postmarked Jackson, Mississippi July 23, 1901. The card is addressed to Miss Ellen Goethe in Sacramento, California.
I have some cute little souvenirs of this pottery if I can fix them up will send them to you.
