This color postcard features a street scene with a large house on the left that is partially obscured by trees. A horse drawn wagon is in the middle of the street and an early twentieth century card is on the right side of the street. Utility poles line the right side of the street. The title in the lower left reads "Vicksburg, Miss. South Street." The date is hand written in the upper right corner and an inscription is handwritten along the bottom of the card. The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides publisher information as well as indication for address placement. The description in the lower left corner reads "South Street is one of the cross streets of the city; while not one of the most important thoroughfares, it presents a pleasing appearance. The buildings are from three to four stories in height, many of them attractive types of a bygone day and generation." A green one cent postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner. Postmark is visible. The card is addressed to Mrs. C. S. Tittle in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
I hope to leave here in about an hour for home. Yours, Claude
