This postcard features a black and white image of the Methodist Church and Sanitarium in Greenville, Mississippi. The church, a two story structure situated on the corner of a street, features a tower on the left corner entrance, arched stained glass windows and arched entry doors. Trees stand at the sidewalk in front of the church where a woman is seen walking and another building is to the right of the church. The title of the card is printed along the bottom of the image and the photographer's name is printed sideways on the right edge outside the image. The back of the postcard is addressed to Miss Martha Hoppe in Cairo, Illinois. The card is postmarked Greenville, Miss., September 11, 1909 and a green, on cent Benjamin Franklin postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner. An inscription is written on the left half of the card. [see transcription field]
Dear Martha--Well here I am in Greenville again. Had quite a nice trip. This is the church I attend. How do you like it? Yours Elsie
