This postcard features a black and white image of a two story public school building in Starkville, Mississippi. A long sidewalk leads up to the building and several trees in the front lawn partially obscure the view of the building. The title of the card is printed below the bottom edge of the image. The publisher is printed on the lower right corner of the image. An inscription is written on the white space beneath the image. [see transcription field] The back of the card is addressed to Miss Lella Ross in St. Louis, Missouri. The card is postmarked Starkville, Miss., November 10, 1906 and a green, one cent Benjamin Franklin postage stamp is placed crookedly in the upper right corner.
Here is where I spend many happy hours with "my 39." Do wish you were here to drive with me. It is warm enough to wear a thin white dress. T [sic]
