This postcard is a blue toned illustration of the catholic church and convent at Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. The church, on the right, is a neoclassical style church with a square clock tower on the left and a shorter square tower on the right. Six, white, two story columns at the front entrance. The convent, to the right of the church, is a two story building with smaller white columns at the entrance and scalloped roof line with a cross perched on top. A fence runs in front of the buildings and a bare tree is in front of the convent. The title of the card is printed along the bottom edge of the image.
