This postcard features a black and white image of Rawls Springs, a popular resort located northwest of Hattiesburg near Mineral Creek. Trees, a small structure and people gathered around a small fenced area are pictured. The title of the card is printed below the image. An inscription is written across the image. The back of the card is addressed to Mr. E. H. Sojourner in Slidell, Louisiana. The card is postmarked Hattiesburg, Mississippi, October 12, 1907 and a green, one cent Benjamin Franklin postage stamp is placed crookedly in the upper right corner.
This is where we drive and opend Sundays in the good old summer time. But its nothing like going to Pearl River--not half as nice. And often the other person that makes a difference don't you know. H. J. [sic]
