This postcard features a black and white image of people, mostly women, paddling canoes on the lake at Lindsey's Park in Laurel, Mississippi. There are five canoes on the lake and small buildings and trees line the lake shore. The title of the card is printed in decorative font along the top of the image. The back of the card is addressed to Miss Augusta A Jackson in Lexington, Massachusetts. The card is postmarked Laurel, Miss., March 30, 1911 and a green, one cent Benjamin Franklin postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner. An inscription is written sideways on the left half of the card. [see transcription field]
