This postcard features a color image of a large crowd of students and teachers gathered on the lawn of the Poplarville High School, a white, two story building with a bell tower in the center. Trees are on either end of the school, "framing" the group of students. The title of the card is printed along the bottom edge of the card. The back of the card is addressed to J. J. Freno in Denver, Colorado. The card is postmarked Poplarville, Miss., February 20, 1913 and a green, one cent George Washington postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner. An inscription is written on the left half of the card. [see transcription field]
