This sepia toned picture postcard features a railroad track, a cabin, and utility poles in floodwaters. "Bogue Phalia, Flood 1913, South RR near Leland Miss., photo by Mosier" is handwritten on the left side of the image. The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides indication for correspondence and address placement. "Miss Maud" is handwritten in the address section but the rest of the name and address and the outer edges of the entire card is damaged by glue and black paper residue from having been removed from a scrapbook.
