The state of Mississippi had only one interurban line, the Gulfport & Mississippi Coast Traction Co., which extended from Gulfport east to Biloxi and west to Pass Christian. The well-built track was laid on a right of way that was very close to the shore of the Gulf of Mexico. This appears to be a view of a section of the line after the hurricane had passed, perhaps the next day or so. Wires are down, and the interurban car is stranded. In addition, the track may have been damaged, as the car appears to be leaning.
