This postcard features a color illustration of the water view along the Mississippi Gulf Coast in Bay Saint Louis, Mississippi. A street with trees planted in the middle runs along the edge of the water and a long pier is seen in the water. A white building with trees surrounding it is depicted to the left of the street. The title of the card is printed in the upper left of the image. The back of the card is addressed to Mr. Henry Bowman in Gratis, Ohio. The card is postmarked twice: Bay St. Louis, Miss., December 1907 and Gratis, Ohio, December 26, 1907. A green, one cent Benjamin Franklin postage stamp is in the upper right corner of the card. An inscription is written on the left half of the card. [see transcription field]
