Description

This black and white postcard features a gothic style church with a tower at the front entrance and a steeple in the center of the roof. Arched windows with ornate moldings are throughout the church. People are walking the sidewalk in front of the church. The title in the upper right identifies the church as "First Baptist Church, Greenville, Mississippi." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides publisher information as well as indication for address placement. A green one cent postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner, the top of which is missing. The card is postmarked Greenville, Mississippi, May 15, 1912. The card is inscribed and addressed to Mrs. Blanche Ballinger in Memphis, Tennessee.
