I realize this is hard to read, since the Yiddish words are cut off and worn, but even a few words might shed light. Can of of them be deciphered? This postcard was sent to the Hammers on Queen St. West in Toronto. I think it is a photo of my grandmother, Lily Pomerancblum and her mother, Tauba Pomerancblum. Lily's sister Sadie had been living in Toronto since 1913 with her husband Izrael. Lily came later, in 1920. Thank you.

On the larger head I can read the word "mit" (with).
I'm afraid that's all I can read.
9/15/2013 2:06 PM My e-mail is mdpelta@yahoo.com. I come from a prominent family in Kinsk/Konskie. I have done extensive research on what you find of interest. I can share all of it with you, if you like. The persons you dealt with are indeed nice people. There is one guy who has very valuable photos that were seized from the Gestapo office in Kinsk. They were taken off the web but Wozniak and others know about them. Anyway here is not the best place I can share the info with you. My cell number in San Francisco is 415 963 1152. Thanks,

Mordechai Pelta
