The second photo, printed on an undated, divided-back RPPC (Real Photo Postcard) (not postally used) depicts a group of 17 women plus a preteen girl, and is identified on the back in recent handwriting:

Grace Orcutt, born 24 Nov 1903 in IA, and Helen Orcutt, born 1904 in IA, were daughters of a farmer turned bank president, George Henry Orcutt, born Jun 1871 in IA; and Lola M. Shaw, born about 1875 in IA.I found the family listed in the 1910 and 1920 Census data for Fairview Township, Monroe town (resided on Lincoln Street), Jasper Co., IA; the 1920 Census data for Long Beach (resided at 411 East 8th Street), Los Angeles Co., CA; the 1925 Iowa State Census data for Jasper Co., IA; and the 1930 Census data for Fairview Township, Monroe town, Jasper Co., IA.
Grace married a lawyer, Clyde B. Charlton, born about 1899 in OH.The couple had two children--Ann, born about 1927 in IA; and Clyde Henry, born 31 Aug 1929 in IA, died 23 May 1985 in Alameda Co., CA.
At the time of the April 1930 enumeration, Helen was a 26-yr-old single woman employed in the Advertising Dept. of Marshall Field, residing with her parents.
