photographic postcards
A photographic postcard of three unidentified women standing in front of a studio backdrop. The woman to the left is wearing striped knickers and laced high-heeled boots with a button-front cardigan over a collared shirt and tie. She also wears a brimmed hat with ribbon band and holds a carved wooden cane in her proper right hand. The woman in the center wears knickers and boots, a turtleneck sweater, and a hat with a tall feather and other vertical elements. The third woman, to the right, wears long pants and a jacket with a collared shirt and tie and a wide brimmed hat. She stands with her proper left hand in her jacket pocket. All three women are looking towards the camera. The back of the photographic postcard is unused and has [POST CARD] printed in black at the top and blank spaces for [CORRESPONDENCE HERE] and [NAME AND ADDRESS HERE]. In the upper right corner there is a [AZO] stamp with triangles pointing up in all four corners of the stamp. The back also has an inscription of numbers written in pencil on the right side.
