Postcard of spirea in bloom by a rustic bridge (likely over Brush Creek) in the Indian Hills neighborhood of Mission Hills, Kansas. The back of the postcard includes a letter J.C. Nichols Investment Company to Dr. Albert E. Jones of Kansas City. The letter reads: "Spring is lovely in Mission Hills and Indian Hills. Summer, Fall and Winter each also makes its particular appeal. Horseback riding, hiking, skating, golf, tennis, picnicking, community meets and other outdoor pastimes are especially enjoyable in such beautiful surroundings."
