This postcard features a color illustration of a home once occupied by General Andrew Jackson in Waveland, Mississippi. The house, a one story white house with white columns along the porch and a cupola, is situated on the waterfront with one tree on the left and one tree covering the right side of the house. The house is depicted as being reflected on the water. The title of the card is printed along the bottom of the card. An inscription is written on the left half of the back of the postcard though the card was never mailed.
Here is where we ate our dinner on the porch of this old home we went bathing in the Gulf in the front of the house [sic]
