This black and white postcard features a three story building with a tower in the center at the entrance. Trees partially obscure the view of the building. The title along the bottom of the card identifies the building as "Southern Christian College, West Point, 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 twice. The first postmark is for West Point, Mississippi, January 9, 1911 and the second postmark is for Booneville, Mississippi, January 1911. The card is inscribed and is addressed to Miss Margaret Hurt in Booneville, Mississippi.
Was so glad to get your card. Just had a letter from Miss Rose. She is enjoying life from the way she writes. Am keeping study hall so I'm doing good. Anie
