This black and white postcard features a large brick building with four white columns across the front entrance, two chimneys, and a side entrance. Trees and a utility pole are in front of the building and two people are seated on the side entrance steps. The title beneath the image reads "Public School Building, Yazoo City, Miss." The photographer is listed in the lower right of the image. An inscription is handwritten along the bottom of the cards. The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides publisher information as well as indication for address placement. A green one cent postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked twice. The first postmark is Yazoo City, Mississippi, September 17, 1906 and the second postmark is Staunton, Virginia, September 18, 1906. The card is addressed to Miss Margaret Cunningham in Staunton, Virginia.
Hello Margaret: Aren't you glad we don't go to school here? It seems funny to me not to go off this year. Did you get my letter? Answer soon, S. E. Hyatt. [sic]
