Amelia, O. Art Mfg. Co.
This black and white postcard features the interior of a drug store soda fountain which features a long countertop at the soda fountain with stools lined in front. Small potted palm trees, a shiny tile floor, and ceiling fans make up the rest of the decor. The title in the lower left identifies the room as "The Crystal, Clarksdale, Miss." and the publisher is listed the lower right reads "The Crystal Pub." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides publisher information as well as indication for correspondence, address, and postage stamp placement. The space designated for the postage stamp is slightly discolored where the stamp has been removed. The card is postmarked but the postmark is too faded to read. The card is illegibly inscribed and is addressed to Mrs. William Stefan in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
