This color postcard features a palm tree lined highway. The title along the top reads "Scenic Highway Along Gulf, Bay St. Louis, Miss.--93 The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides publisher and artist information. Two green one cent postage stamps are placed in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked Long Beach, Mississippi, Aug. 30, 1952. The description in the upper left reads "This is a good place to live, being one of the nation's healthiest communities. Nearby are golf courses, numerous shuffleboard courts, beautiful drives, good motion pictures, theatres, shops, good salt water beaches for warm days and almost always the golden sunshine, a great prescription to new health and joy." The card is inscribed and is addressed to Mrs. Lucy Darnell in Meridian, Mississippi.
Monday, Dear Mama, Our trip was unexpected, so didn't have time to phone you. This is a beautiful drive down this beach but it is hot here too. We caught some crabs but not many fish. Love, Bruce
