The hotel is a white two story structure with porches and balconies that run the length of the building. Trees and bushes are in the yard of the hotel and one large tree at the sidewalk partially obscures the view of the hotel building. The entrance sign, "Tulane Hotel" hangs above the gated walkway. The title of the card is printed in the upper left of the image and the date, Aug 23, 1908 is handwritten beneath it. The word's "My room" are written beside a second story window on the right side of the image. The back of the card is addressed to Miss Lyda Fellow in Amboy, Indiana. The card is postmarked Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, August 24, 1908 and a green, one cent Benjamin Franklin postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner of the card. An inscription is written on the left half of the card. [see transcription field]
