This postcard features a black and white image of two houses in Long Beach Mississippi with Palms and other trees in front. The homes both feature long front porches with white columns and decorative railing. The house on the left has a gable dormer and the house on the right has a hipped dormer. A white picket fence runs between the two houses. The title of the card is printed in red along the top of the image. The back of the postcard is addressed to Prof. J. L. Rynerson and Vanarsdell, Kentucky. The card is postmarked Long Beach, Miss., August 10, 1910 and a green, one cent Benjamin Franklin postage stamp is in the upper right corner. An inscription is written sideways on the left half of the card. [see transcription field]
