Wordless Wednesday: A Southern Baptism

This vintage postcard features “A Southern Baptism.”  It depicts a woman being baptized in a river by her minister. The front of the card reads: “10552 A Southern Baptist.” Detroit Publishing Co made the card as part of its Black Americana line in the late 1800s/early 1900s. The card is postmarked 1918 from Wilmington, NC and is addressed to a Mrs. Alfred Capron, Copley in Ohio.
