This sepia toned picture postcard features a bridge over a creek. Remnants of the previous bridge are in the water and horse-drawn wagons are on bridge. Trees and houses are behind the bridge. The title along the bottom identifies the image as "Bridge over Deer Creek, Leland, Miss." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides publisher information as well as indication for correspondence and address placement. A green one cent postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked Mem and N. O. RRO, North Division, August 19, 1916. The card is inscribed and is addressed to Mr. James Thompson in New Richland, Minnesota.
