Description: Postcard of snow-covered trees with a path cut between and over a wooden bridge. Two well-dressed men walk along the path. The scene is described as "Louisville, Ky. "White Winter," Cherokee Park." The back of the postcard adds history to Cherokee Park, with " "White Winter" - Cherokee Park Nowhere does the beautiful snow show more effect than in Cherokee Park, the pleasure ground in the eastern section of Louisville. The Park, containing 341 acres of gently rolling land, is cut into picturesque ravines by Beargrass Creek; it was acquired by the city in 1891, and named in remembrance of the Indian Tribe who occupied this superb stretch of land before Louisville existed." A letter adds, "We missed connection, so here we are in Louisville going to Staunton tonight if nothing happens." The postcard is addressed to "Miss Mamie McFaddin 1141 3rd Ave. Huntington, W. Va."
