Jackson City Hall & Hinds County Courthouse

Hinds County, Mississippi

Linen Postcard

Here's a 3-fer! Pictured on this unused linen-era postcard are the Jackson City Hall, the Hinds County Courthouse, and the lovely floral gardens.

On the reverse, you can read

Jackson, the capitol city of the state, and the county seat of Hinds County, was named in honor of General Andrew Jackson. It is located on the Pearl River, 45 miles east of Vicksburg., in  a productive cotton section and not far distant is the long-leaf pine region.

It was published by City News Co. of Jackson, and is a Natural Color Postcard made in U. S A. by E. C. Kropp Cp., Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

According to Mashburn's The Postcard Price Guide, A Comprehensive Reference, the Linen Era postcards were produced between 1930-1945. The paper has a linen-like texture, which gives this type of card a distinctive appearance.
