This color postcard features two gentlemen in early twentieth century suits on the bank of water. One man is seated in a chair with a small dog reared up on his knee and the other man is standing nearby. Trees are behind the men and the water is to the right. Piers can be faintly seen in the water in the distance. The title in the white space on the left beneath the image identifies the location as "Back Bay, Ocean Springs, Miss." Copyright information is in the right side of the white space beneath the image. The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides indication for address and postage stamp placement. The card is inscribed but not postmarked or addressed.
