This black and white postcard features a corner view of a four story hotel building with an intricately designed corner cupola as the focus. The ground floor entrance of the cupola has arched stone columns, the second floor of the cupola has a balcony with ornate railing, the third floor is plain clapboard siding with rectangular windows and the fourth floor has arched windows and an ornate railing along the roof. The entire fourth floor of the building has arched windows and there are ornate moldings along the roofline. An early twentieth century car is parked at the sidewalk in the right side of the hotel. The title along the bottom of the card identifies the hotel as "Natchez Hotel, Natchez, Miss." The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides indication for correspondence, address, and postage stamp placement. The postage stamp has been removed from the designated space. The card is postmarked Natchez, Mississippi, February 24, 1911. The card is inscribed and is addressed to Mr. Victor Winston in Sistersville, West Virginia.
Hottest place yet. Nothing but colored people. Saw Bishop laid out in the Cathedral. Dad
