This postcard features a color illustration of the Biloxi Yacht Club, a two story structure constructed in the water. A cupola is on the roof, a porch wraps around the building, and pier leads to it from the beach. Two canoes or small boats are depicted in the water beside the building and a sailboat or yacht is seen out in the open water to the right. The title is printed beneath the bottom edge of the image and an inscription is written in the white space beneath the image. The inscription reads, "Wish you were here to enjoy the water with me. Erna". "Biloxi, Miss. March 21-1907 " is inscribed in the top right corner of the image. The back of the card is addressed to Miss. Sue Hunt in Jackson, Tennessee. The card is postmarked twice: Biloxi, Miss. Mar. 21, 1907 and Jackson, Tenn. Mar. 22. A green, one cent Benjamin Franklin postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner of the card.
