This postcard features two black and white images from the New Clopton Hotel in Aberdeen, Mississippi. The image on the left is of a two story building with a turret on the left end, a long front porch and a second story balcony with white columns and railings. A tree partially obscures the right end of the building. The image on the right is of two, two story buildings with gabled roofs and short porches with columns. A tree on the right partially obscures the side of the house. The title of the card is printed beneath the images and an inscription is written above and below the image. A postmark for Vicksburg, Miss., February 9, 1907 and a "received" mark are stamped on the right and left corners of the images, respectively. The back of the card is addressed to Miss Jewell Davis in Vicksburg, Mississippi. A faded postmark is beside a green, one cent Benjamin Franklin postage stamp in the upper right of the card.
