Linen Postcard

Unknown Date

This linen-era view of the Piney Woods School in Piney Woods, Mississippi, was never used. From left to right the labels on the buildings read, " Workshops (Mechanical, Carpenter, Plumbing, Electrical), Boys' Dorm, Guest House, Library, Classroom Bldg., Dining Hall, Girls' Dorm."

On the reverse side, it reads, "In addition to the buildings, all in use, on the reverse side, we have a new post office and guest cottage."

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.
