This color postcard features a white building with decorative columns attached on all sides. An United States Flag flies on a pole on the roof of the building. An early twentieth century car is parked in front of the building and people are walking on the sidewalk and up the stairs. The title along the top of the card reads "U. S. Post Office, Hattiesburg, 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 upside down in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked Hattiesburg, Mississippi, June 12, 1916. The card is inscribed and is addressed to the Jones' in Fernwood, Mississippi.
Arrived here alright. Are trying to see Miss Emily. Grace goes out to the Normal every morning. Be sure to keep all the news until I get home. L
