The title in the upper right reads "Summer Homes on Beach Front, Waveland, Miss." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides publisher information as well as indication for address and correspondence placement. A green postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner. The card is inscribed and is addressed to Mr. and Mrs. J. Spellman in Gretna, LA. "7.50" is written in pencil in the upper right. The postmark is illegible.
