This black and white postcard features a large five story building with a tower on each corner and dormer windows along the roofline. Trees partially obscure the right end of the building. A sidewalk leads up to the building. The title, "Miss. Industrial Institute, Columbus, Miss." is along the bottom of the card. The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides publisher information as well as indication for address and postage stamp placement.
