This black and white postcard features a series of box cars on two or three railroad tracks in front of a group of buildings. There are two tall smoke stacks to the left and a water tower is visible the distance. The title along the top reads "Tupelo Cotton Mills, Tupelo, Miss." 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 in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked Tupelo, Mississippi, April 29, 1937. The card is inscribed and is addressed to Mrs. Lillian Nelson in Bangor, Alabama.
Tupelo Miss Wed. 1937 Dearest Lillian I got your letter [?] and it sure was a sweet one to. I sure was glad to here about Ramme ducks. He is so sweet and you to. I think I will get to come home Friday if we do not work Saturday. But don't look forward to much. I may not get to come. C. N. [sic]
