This postcard features two black and white images from the Anniston Hotel and Pier near Gulfport, Mississippi. The first image, on the left, shows the Anniston Hotel at the beach as viewed from the pier out in the water. An expanse of beachfront is visible as well as trees that appear in front of and behind the hotel. The image is depicted within an illustration of a wooden frame. The second image, to the right, is the view of the structure at the end of the pier out on the water. The image is primarily encircled with the pier jutting out of the circle. An illustration of flowers is in the area where the two images meet. The title of the card is printed in the lower left corner of the card and publisher's name is printed along the curve of the second image. The back of the card is addressed to Mr. Geo. [George] Way in New Orleans, Louisiana. The card is postmarked Biloxi, Mississippi, August 26, 1912 and a green, one cent postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner. A transcription is written sideways on the left half of the card. [see transcription field]
Same old place. Hardly knew Lon she was so sun burned. We had a dandy time Sunday. Don't forget Wed. night. Mary [sic]
