This black and white picture postcard features a bridge over the water with snow covered land around it. Houses and buildings are seen on the far side of the water. The title along the bottom of the card reads "The Bridge in Winter of 1894, Greenwood, Miss." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides indication for correspondence placement. A green one cent postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked Greenwood, Mississippi, November 27, 1908. The card is inscribed and is addressed to Mrs. C. J. Phillips in Sulfur Springs, Arkansas.
Dear Martha, Recd your letter and the clipping. Gee, he might have been killed. Dear little Fig is too little to send to school. Will write later honey. Just sent papa a card. Had my brown dress fitted today. [?] [sic]
