A postcard depicting two rooms in the Bethune House. The image at the top of the postcard is in black and white, and it depicts the dining room. The table seats six people, and is elongated and covered in a white tablecloth. A centerpiece sits in the middle of the table. On the right side of the room is a china cabinet which has silverware on display on top. To the left of the cabinet is floor lamp. To the left of the floor lamp is a wall hutch with china displayed. The floor is covered in an overzied rug. The image at the bottom of the postcard is of the living room in Bethune House. At the right of the image, a display case, most likely holding memorabilia of Mary McLeod Bethune's life, sits in front of a staircase leading to the second floor. Across from the staircase along the front wall is a foyer table with a mirror hanging above it. To the left of the table is the front door, and to the left of the front door is a striped couch. Curtains can partially be seen. The floor is covered by a large rug. On the back of the image is written in pencil, ""Dining room (Bethune House),"" and ""Living Room, Bethune Foundation, early 1950s."" The postcard has been glued to another piece of paper, so the original print on the back of the postcard has been peeled away. The box for the stamp on the back is visible. Also visible is, ""May McLeod Bethune Foundation,"" as well as the publisher's information.
