A handwritten note on the back identifies her as Katherine Fagan …

… but that doesn't really tell me who she was. Since the postcard came out of the steamer trunk, I suppose she was a friend of Minnie Rossow.

Based on the style of her clothing (what I can see of it), I would estimate the date at roughly 1913. Siegel Cooper & Co., which printed the postcard and/or took the photo, was a large department store in Chicago.
