This postcard features a color illustration of a yellow and gray, three story High School in Newton, Mississippi. A set of steps lead up to the second floor entrance of the building and a third floor balcony is above the entrance. Two trees in front of the building partially obscure portions of it. The title of the card is printed in the upper left corner of the image. The back of the card is addressed to Mrs. John Allen in Danville, Illinois. The card is postmarked Newton, Miss., August 4, 1912 and a green, one cent Benjamin Franklin postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner. An inscription is written on the left half of the card.

We have bought a home in town and a small farm 2 miles out, so are settled for awhile. Not so hot here yet as Ill. Nights cool.--Abby [sic]
