This black and white postcard features a street with streetcar tracks running down the center. Trees and buildings line the side of the street and people are standing near the trees on the left and a woman in a white dress and hat is standing near the trees on the right. The photographer is listed in the lower left of the image and the title along the bottom identifies the scene as "8th Street Looking West, Meridian, Miss." A mostly illegible transcription is written along the top and bottom of the image and card. The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides indication for address placement. A green one cent postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked Meridian, Mississippi, July 16, 1907. The card is addressed to Miss Annie Marshall Wilson in Mobile, Alabama.
