This black and white postcard features a two story brick building with four brick columns and a second floor balcony. A faux mounted elk head is in the center of the gable with a plaque beneath it that reads "Cotton-Pickers." Men are standing on the front porch and seated on the front steps. The title in the upper left reads "Elks' Home, Greenville, Miss. 6847". The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides indication for address placement. A green one cent postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked Greenville, Mississippi, October 12, 1915. The card is inscribed and is addressed to Miss Edith Davis in Sheridan, New York.
Monday Night Fine bright sunshiny weather, but the nights are cold. Even had a little frost in some parts of the state. Tell ma I never found my shirt. I think the Pullman porter must have stolen it. That is all I missed tho. Queer he didn't take anything else. How is every body? Vernon [sic]
