This postcard features a black and white image of a train depot with early 20th century cars parked in front and a train car parked along the boardwalk behind it. People are seen standing on the boardwalk. Leafy green limbs of a tree are in the upper left corner of the image and an electric power line pole is standing between the cars. The title of the card is printed along the top of the image and the publisher's name is printed along the bottom edge of the image. The back of the postcard is addressed to Miss Mae Quinn in New Orleans, Louisiana. The card is postmarked Long Beach, Miss., June 10, 1908 and a green, one cent postage stamp is placed sideways in the upper right corner. An inscription is written on the left half of the card.
