3/20/2008 B.Latorski is the name of the photography studio.
Szawli,the name of the town.
3/20/2008 Name of photographer and town on right-somewhere in Lithuania, I believe.
3/22/2008 Hi Ralene,

I am giving you my educated guess. The first name, "B. Zatorski/Zatorsky" is probably the name of the phogragpher or photography studio.

"Szawli" is probably the town in which the photographer was located.

If you go to the Jewishgen site and look for Shtetels or Towns, type in Szawli. If you think it is in Lithuania, that might help you in your search. I will try to send that page to you separately. Hope that this helps.

Good luck with your search....Jo
3/22/2008 Hi Ralene,

I found the information for you regarding the town, Zsawli, but I cannot send it without your e-mail address (as I don't know where to send it). I cannot send it through this site. Either I can send it to you, or if you would rather find it for yourself, it is on the JewishGen Communities Database. Whatever it more convenient for you.

Jo
3/23/2008 Look like the photographer's name and his place of business, the town of Szwali, Lithuania
