Mystery RPPC: Girl with extremely long hair

This girl looks like she's 6 or 7 years old, and I'm not sure her hair had ever been cut! Based on the AZO stamp box on the back of this postcard, it was produced between 1904 and 1918. Alas, there is no writing on the back of the card. Nary a clue as to who this was. We can reckon she was born between 1898 and 1912. Depending how long she lived, she saw a great deal of interesting times: the Great Depression, the New Deal, World War II, the Cold War, the moon landing, and the disco era. Perhaps she even saw the Reagan presidency, Zaxxon and "The Smurfs." Crazy century, that 20th century.

If you have a hankering for more mystery real photo postcards, here's a good place to start.
