Mexican angelito
Anonymous, North American
real photo postcard

A real photo postcard with a 1927-1940 AZO back showing an 'Angelito' [English: 'little angel'], a dead infant laid out wearing a floral crown, a common custom in many parts of Latin America. 

Photographer unidentified. The fact that the postcard has an AZO back printed in English possibly means that the photograph is American in origin and not from Mexico itself.

The postcard measures 3.4" by 5.4" (8.7 cm by 13.7 cm) inlcuding a white border (not shown in scan).
