This color postcard features a large riverboat on the water. The riverboat bares the name "Vienna" and consists of multiple levels, six smoke stacks, and a tower. People are gathered on the riverbank near the boat. Trees are behind it. The title in the upper left reads "Tombigbee River Boat Landing in Columbus, Miss." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides publisher information. A green one cent postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked Columbus, Mississippi, September 2, 1908. A logo for "Litho-Chrome" is in the upper left corner. The card is inscribed and is addressed to Miss Emily Hayas in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
