This black and white postcard features buildings and people lined up on the sidewalk in front. A horse drawn carriage is parked on the far end of the street. A sign for shoes is visible on one of the buildings. The barely visible title along the bottom identifies the street as "Howard Street, Greenwood, Miss." This back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides publisher information as well as indication for correspondence, address, and postage stamp placement. The card is inscribed.
