This postcard features a black and white image of the Summit, Mississippi High School. The building is a two story Spanish style structure with a curved roof line and a bell tower in the center. A large crowd of people are gathered in front of the school with some horse and wagons. Trees are seen to the left of the building. The title and publisher of the card is printed beneath the bottom edge of the image and an inscription is along the top, right, and bottom edges of the card. The inscription reads, counter clockwise from the bottom, "I am just home. Have attended three weddings in the last two weeks and don't think i can stand any more soon. Have lots of cards from Jamestown, Wis." The back of the card is addressed to Mr. W. E. Driver in Monticello, Mississippi. The card is postmarked Summit, Miss., June 1907 and a green, one cent Benjamin Franklin postage stamp is placed in the upper right corner of the card.
