This color postcard features a large white three story Tudor house with dormer windows, a second floor balcony, and white posts. A tall palm tree stands on the right corner of the house and a line of full trees is along the right end of the house and along the left of the yard. A set of steps at the front sidewalk lead up to the house. The title along the top, "Residence of Simon Moses, Natchez, Miss.", identifies the house. The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides publisher information as well as indication for correspondence and address placement. There is no postage stamp but the card is postmarked Natchez, Mississippi, September 10, 1912. The card is inscribed and is addressed to Miss Cora Miles in New Orleans, Louisiana.
