Description

This color postcard features a large three story building with a turret on the right corner. People are walking the sidewalks and horse drawn carriages are in the street. The title along the bottom reads " Vicksburg, Miss. Post Office." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides publisher information as well as indication for address and postage stamp placement. The description in the lower left reads "The Post Office occupies the same building as the Custom House. While not as architecturally as beautiful as the old Court House (built by slaves in 1848) or the handsome new City Hall, recently finished, it is a substantial structure of brick and stone, three stories in height, with a tower at one end."
