What it is:

Real photo postcard trimmed down to a bit less than 3.5 x 4.5 inches.

What I know about it:

Undated and unidentified, but the paper manufacturer’s markings (AZO, four triangles pointing up) narrow the date range to 1904-1918.

Comments:

I figured I’d better break up the monotony of child pictures by posting something from the other end of the age spectrum.  When I posted this photo of a young woman wearing a necktie, the question arose as to whether that was a common style.  While this photo doesn’t answer that question, it at least provides another example.

  1. I wouldn’t want to mess with the one sitting in the chair…she might hurt me!

  2. Neckties were very common for women during this period.
