Call Number: PI/1992.0001, Item 1726 (MDAH Collection)

This is a fun postcard of the municipal swimming pool in West Point (Clay County) from the Cooper Postcard Collection. It is undated, but probably from the 1930s.

The Cooper Postcard Collection is comprised of approximately 4,600 postcards depicting scenes from around the state from 1892 through the 1940s. It focuses on the theme of Mississippiana, featuring scenes of small towns, mineral springs, agricultural and forestry activities, and railroads. It can be viewed in its entirety in the Digital Archives, along with other collections that have been scanned and made available online.
