C. T. American Art
This color postcard features a multilevel red and white brick building with an American flag flying on a flagpole to the left of the building. The title along the top of the card reads "High School, Hattiesburg, Miss." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides publisher and creator information. The postage stamp has been removed and the card is postmarked Camp Shelby, Mississippi, August 22, 1934. The card is inscribed, though several places in the inscription are damaged and illegible. The card is addressed to Mrs. Joe S. Cain in Sallis, Mississippi.
