Description

This color postcard features a triple deck riverboat with two smoke stacks in the front and a sign for "Vienna" on the rear side. People are standing on the cock leading to the boat and people are also standing on the bottom loading part of the deck. Stacks of cargo are gathered near the loading dock. The sign along the top of the card reads "Tombigbee River Boat Landing at Columbus, Miss." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a Litho-Chrome postcard and provides publisher information as well as indication for postage stamp placement. A long inscription is handwritten the length of the card.
