This postcard features a mostly black and white image of the Ramsey Springs Hotel in Wiggins, Mississippi. The hotel is a long, three story building with pitched roofs on each end giving the effect of towers. Trees partially obscure the view of the hotel and the sky has been colored a light blue. The title of the card is printed along the bottom of the card. The back of the postcard is addressed to Miss Anna Marie Brawn in Effingham, Illinois. The card is postmarked Wiggins, Miss., October 7, 1940 and a green, one cent George Washington 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]
