"Cottage Gardens"

Natchez, Mississippi

Adams County

Linen Postcard

Date Unknown

This unused linen postcard features an image of a house in Natchez, Mississippi, named "Cottage Gardens." Click here to see the reverse side, which includes a description of the house. While the card was never mailed to anyone, it appears that 2 different people wrote notes on the reverse side. One person, probably the original owner of the postcard, appears to have made the notes after visiting Cottage Gardens. The other individual noted that the card was purchased on December 8, 1980, at Conover Square in Oregon, Illinois.

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.
