This color postcard features a large four story building with a cupola in the center of the roof. Trees line the front of the building. The title along the bottom of the card reads "Front Entrance, Meridian Female College, Meridian, Miss." An inscription is handwritten on the white space on the right side of the card. The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides indication for correspondence, address, and postage stamp placement. An inscription is handwritten along the length of the card.
[front of the postcard] This is the Main College Building for the girls. I will mark #1, 2 [and] 3. #1 will be the entrance #2 a little farther up the walk and #3 the college. This building is the same. [back of the postcard] We have three separate buildings: Main (or College Building), Conservatory for Music, and Science Hall. There are girls that room in all three. The main building is nearly one block long and about as wide. The Campus is very beautiful. If I can I will get one of our catalogues of the college and send to you for I couldn't begin to tell you about the college. They have a college for boys about a quarter of a mile from here on the same campus. I will send you a postal of it. [sic]
