4/25/2013 1:55 AM Hello Janie,

The answers part of the other Viewmate image. The addressee is (Sir) Mr. Jonas Friedmann, whose address follows. The city is Becs in Vienna.

Based on the other side of the card, my educated guess is that Jonas was Izidor's brother.

Hope that gives you some insight into the family...Jo
4/27/2013 3:42 PM The postmark is Eger, Dec. 31st, but the year isn't readable. (It probably ends in 3 or 8.)
It's addressed to Mr. Jonas Friedmann. The street address is very hard to make out, but a period map of Vienna may help -- the postman apparently figured it out, anyway. It looks like it starts with II, which is probably the district number, and it's something-gasse No. 12; the something looks like Tandelmank, but that doesn't make sense...
The second address line looks like "Partere türn, 8", but I really don't know what it's actually trying to be.
The city is written first in Hungarian, then in German, but either way, it's Vienna.
4/28/2013 4:13 PM The Tandelmarktgasse in the 2nd Borough of Vienna can be found on Google Maps.
Parter[r]e = ground floor (from French: par terre)
Tühr is a misspelling of Tür - door.
So Jonas Friedman lived at 12 Tandelmarktgasse, at the ground foor, appartment number 2.
