A Typical Colored Family, Holly Springs, Miss.
This postcard features a color image of a Black family gathered in front of a wooden house. The family consists of two adults, a man and a woman, and six children. The woman is holding one of the children and the other children are standing in front of and beside the couple. The house behind them has a red roof and there is a chair on just off the porch behind them. The title is printed in the lower left of the image.
