Mrs. Lincoln is shown in a formal dress standing beside Mr. Lincoln who is seated with her left hand resting on his right arm. The Gateway Technical Institute is seen behind the statue. The postcard reverse is divided. Narrative text is printed on the left side. Part of the Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection, courtesy of the Indiana State Museum
