This postcard features a black and white image of debris left by a tornado in Meridian, Mississippi. Utility poles and train cars are seen and people can be seen near the train cars and working among the debris. The tornado hit on March 2, 1906. The title of the card is printed beneath the bottom edge of the image and an inscription is written on the bottom edge of the card. The back of the card is addressed to Miss Nellie Frazeir in Jefferson City, Tennessee. The postmark is too faded to read. A green, one cent Benjamin Franklin postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner.
