This color postcard features a church with a steepled tower on the left corner. A row of trees partially obscures the view of the church. The title along the top of the card identifies the church as "First Baptist Church, West Point, Miss." The lines of a postmark are visible in the upper left but postmark information isn't visible. The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides publisher information as well as indication for correspondence and address placement. A green one cent postage stamp is placed upside down in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked Starkville, Mississippi, August 13, 1908. The card is inscribed and is addressed to Miss. Margaret Mosely in West Point, Mississippi.
Hello Pal:- When are you going to Tupelo? Sweetie will write you a letter real soon. Would have phoned you when I left but decided to phone so late I hardly had time to get ready. Hal [sic]
