The postcard of the day is a circa 1930 dual view of downtown Laurel Mississippi produced by E. C. Kropp of Milwaukee Wisconsin. Laurel had a population of approximately 13,000 people at this time, is in Jones county and is the home to the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art, Mississippi's oldest art museum. The 2000 census showed a population of 18,393 but it experienced a significant increase post Katrina. The top view of the post card shows Oak Street looking East from the Post Office. The lower image shows Central Avenue looking West from the Woolworth store. This postcard can be found in my Mississippi listings along with 10,000 more postcards on my website Moody's Postcards.
