This postcard features a color illustration of the Great Southern Hotel in Gulfport, Mississippi. The hotel is a large, four story, L-shaped structure with balconies along the second floor of the shorter portion of the building, dormer windows long the roof, and is depicted as having green siding with a red roof. Colorful bushes and trees dot the hotel grounds, a long sidewalk leads to the hotel entrance, and a tennis court is to the right of the sidewalk. A view of the Gulf is seen behind the hotel with boats out on the water. The title of the card is printed in the upper left of the image.
