This postcard features a black and white image of people crowded in front of George E. Northrop's Department Store in Gulfport, Mississippi. The building is a two story building with arched windows on the second story and dental molding along the roofline. a sign for the store hangs in the middle just above the entrance. A horse and carriage is behind the crowd of people and another horse with the carriage hitch visible is facing the horse and carriage. The title of the card is printed along the top of the image. The back of the card is addressed to Mr. Mack Robinson in Mobile, Alabama. The postmark is too faded to read and a green, one cent Benjamin Franklin postage stamp is placed sideways in the upper right corner. An inscription is written on the left half of the card. [see transcription]
Hello Mack:- Say I like your nerve why didn't you come up town yesterday like you said you would am awefuly sorry I did not get to see you. "Pinkie" Jackson Harn [sic]
