The magnificent railroad station on Market Street in St. Louis in 1907. Frisco trains departed from here for southwest destinations. Although scores of trains no longer puff and steam at its gates, the station still stands today, housing a hotel and shopping mall. This card is addressed to "Master Jimmy Black", who was James Bostick, Eliza's grandson. He was living with Eliza and Amanda.

This is an early post card with an undivided back, postmarked Jan 1, 1907. The reverse has lines for the address and no space for a message, nor was one allowed. If any message was written, it had to be written across the face of the card.
