The post card shows a view of the Middleport Dry Dock. In this postcard there is another open boat, alongside canal boats. Also there are buildings and homes in the background, as well as water and utility poles. In cursive writing, there is also a note. (Dear Mrs. Youngs.- I knew that you missed me by this time so I thought I would write and let you know I am well as usual and having a good time at the city. Uncle G- is a good deal better. Can walk a little now. Floy.)
