RPPC Postcard Lady of the 1930's or 1940's AZO stamp box

Postcards were popular with families.  They had photos taken and turned into postcards.  Usually the people are not identified and you do not have a clue who the person is.  The cabinet cards shared on previous posts show fashionable ladies.  This lady probably lives on a farm and works hard.  Why the picture is so small I don't know.  If it is a real photo postcard you can date them by the stamp box.

This stamp box reads AZO with squares in the corner and the words PLACE STAMP HERE.  On a chart this indicates the lady lived between 1924 and 1949 when these types of cards were printed. This link can useful dating photo postcards

Best used for unmailed postcard as a stamp would cover up the box. Sorry picture is hard to read.
