This black and white photograph features a view of a winding highway among thick forest heading toward a city. Three cars are visible on the highway and the cityscape is visible in the distance. A tall pine tree is prominantly visible on right side of the photograph. A typed label on the back of the photograph identifies the highway as being U. S. Highway 45, on the outskirts of Meridian, Mississippi. The label also gives a brief description of Mississippi's highway system.
