This color postcard features a street with houses one the left side and large red brick church on the right side. Trees also line the street. The title in the upper left identifies the area as "Greenville, Miss. Shelby St., looking North." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides photographer information as well as indication for communications and address placement. A green one cent postage stamp is in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked Greenville, Mississippi, June 27, 1911. A sketch of a peacock identifies the card as a par of the PCK Series. The card is inscribed and is addressed to Miss C. H. Miles in New Orleans, Louisiana.
