This color postcard features a three story hotel with double wrap-around balconies on the second and third floor. Three dormer windows and one chimney are on the roof and a sign for "Hotel Wisteria" is on the front roof pitch. People are standing along the porch and a horse and carriage is parked in front. A group of what appears to be children is seated along the front railing of the hotel. The title in the upper left reads "Hotel Wisteria, Winona, Mississippi." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides indication for correspondence and address placement. A green one cent postage stamp is in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked Winona, Mississippi, February 24, 1911. The card is inscribed and is addressed to Mrs. Balfour Klein in Vicksburg, Mississippi.
Go to Louisville this P. M. Newton tomorrow afternoon and home 9 o'clock [?] train. Love to all. Balfour 2/24/11-
