Vintage Linen Postcard
Fernwood County Club

McComb, Mississippi

Date Unknown

This linen-era postcard features an illustration of Fernwood Country Club in McComb, Mississippi. Shaded by pine trees, the poolside area is furnished with Adirondack-style chairs painted yellow and red (or orange) and simple white-painted wood chairs and benches. There are several large, colorful pots of flowers.

The divider on the back reads, "Louisiana-Mississippi New Co., McComb, Miss." and "Genuine Curteich-Chicago 'C. T. American Art' postcard." A notation on the front at the lower right corner reads "8A53-N."

 The card was never used.

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.
