Tallahatchie Lumber Co.
This color postcard features a paddle steam boat on a river with trees behind it. The title along the top of the card reads "Tallahatchie River near Philipp, Miss." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides indication for address and postage stamp placement. An advertisement for the Tallahatchie Lumber company on the left side of the card reads "May, the month of flowers which bloom in profusion on the banks of the beautiful Tallahatchie river, but of far more practical value to man are the forests extending for miles on either side of the stream. Red and White Oak and the Red Gum here attain their greatest size and these giants of the forest are seen in all their grandeur reaching Heavenward as if to pluck the star gems from the blue above, and it is from this class of timber we manufacture the High Class lumber we send you; each year sees a diminishing supply, so send in your order now to the Tallahatchie Lumber Co. Philipp, Miss. Stock direct from Manufacturer to Consumer."
