This black and white picture postcard features three men standing over saw blades in a saw works manufacturing plant. The man in the forefront is bent over a large saw blade that is laying flat on a table, a tool in his hand. The man in the center is holding a hammer over a saw blade that is laying flat on a table. The third man in the distance is bent over a saw blade that is laying flat on a table. Title below the image reads "J. H. Miner Saw Works, Lumberton, Miss. Hammering Department." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a post card and provides indication for correspondence placement. A green one cent postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner and the card is postmarked Lumberton, Mississippi, September 7, 1908. The card is inscribed and is addressed to G. W. Murphey in Grayson, Louisiana.
How is J. W. Murphy M. D. getting along? Looks like he might let us hear from him sometime. Write soon.
