The card has the same description as the previous ones:

LONG GARDENS

Azaleas – Camellias

Tuthill Lane, Springhill

Mobile, Alabama

One of themes beautiful private gardens in the world

In this natural setting of pine-needled knolls and beautifully landscaped ravines, exquisite beauty has deepened through the years. It blooms forth in azaleas and camellias now, rendering to you one of the most beautiful private gardens in the world… and truly the novelist spot on Mobile’s famous Azalea Trail.

— A review of the site shows that the gardens no longer exist, and the area has been converted to residences. This card likely dates from the 1950s.
