This black and white picture postcard features a man and woman in early twentieth century clothing standing in front of a corn field. The woman is giving the man, who appears to be a Home Demonstration agent, an agricultural creation of hers or a Home Demonstration project in wooden baskets. Boxes are on the ground at their feet and a house can be seen to the left of the corn field. The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides indication for correspondence, address, and postage stamp placement. A date, name, and location are inscribed.
8/20/1917 Mrs. E. Getchale [Getchell]
