I'm trying to find out as much as possible about this postcard/photo. Can anyone tell me the likely location it came from as I'm not sure that it was the USA. The stamp area says "AZO".

If anyone recognizes the people that would be even better.

Thank you,
Ruvane.

10/17/2013 7:14 AM This postcard is very likely printed in the USA between 1918 and 1930. See the following articles: http://artandcolour.blogspot.com/2010/11/early-
20th-century-miami-beach-postcard.html

The AZO postcards from 1907-1909 have diamonds in the corners, those from 1918-1930 have triangles in the corners. I can't really tell whether the stamp shows diamonds or triangles, but I guess it's triangles, when I look at the date and clothing style.

I also have several photo postcards from the 1930s to 1950s. Most of them were never sent as a postcard, but given as a gift to family members. Sometimes there are three or more postcards of the same photograph, therefore it's possible that others may have exactly the same postcard as you.
10/18/2013 10:22 AM It is clear however that whether this has diamonds or triangles that the date is 1919 and that it was taken if not in the US, in an English speaking country.
10/18/2013 5:31 PM I guess this AZO cards were made between 1918 to 1930, it looks like triangles both sides. The card was written 9 / 9 /1919. see in:
