A sample of the accompanying 2 column-length article reads, "Seated placidly by her beautiful spread of bay, and fanned by orange and magnolia laden breezes, the Gulf City has created small echo amid the bustle raised by some of her younger sisters in recent times...Like most Southern towns, Mobile set small store by architectural monuments until quite recently, her pubic building being of the cheapest and simplest. The new Court House, the Cotton Exchange building--in which is also the Chamber of Commerce--the Athelstan Club-house, and several of the church are, however, imposing and handsome structures. Of the older buildings, the more striking are hte Cathedral, the Southern Market, the Manasses Club, the Medical College, and the City Hospital; while the United States adds a handsome granite custom--house and post-office and a fine marine hospital. Barton Academy, the public high-school, is a great adornment to upper Government Street...".
