This black and white postcard features a street with storefronts and horse and wagons. Bales of what appears to be cotton are scattered on a wooden platform in front of a storefront that bares a sign reading "Senatobia." A set of railroad tracks is seen to the right of the wooden platform. The title in the upper left identifies the scene as "Street Scene, Senatobia, Miss." The publisher is listed in the upper right corner. The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides indication for correspondence and address placement. A green, partially removed postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked Senatobia, Mississippi, March 7, 1910. The card is inscribed and is addressed to Miss Tillie Suipkins in Maryland.
Hello Bunks. This is cotton you see on platform. Hope you all are O. K. [?] Willie Memphis, Tenn. Arlington Hotel
