Vintage Linen Postcard

Natchez, Mississippi

Date Unknown

This linen-era postcard features an illustration of the home known as "Richmond," in Natchez, Mississippi. Yes, this is an image of a single house!

The reverse explains, "A most remarkable combination of three distinct periods of Natchez architectural history: including the pioneer Spanish of 1784, the elegant Greek revival of 1832, and a sophisticated ante-bellum type of huge proportions.  Among the treasured antique furnishings is the piano which accompanied Jenny Lind when she sang in Natchez in 1851."

The divider on the back reads, "Published by Louisiana-Mississippi New Co., McComb, Miss." and "'A Natural Color Card' Made by E. C. Kropp Co., Milwaukee, Wis. "

 The card was never used.
