This came from a group of photographs of family in my great grandmother's photo album. I am hoping to get as much information as possible about who these relatives may be, where they lived, when this was written and what they said.

I am also posting the front photo side and several additional images that appear to be of the same man at different times in his life.

Thank you very much.

The image is upside down, I refer to right and left when the image is in the correct orientation

Dear Cousin (female gender) XXXX [can't make out the name] Wysen
I can write you who my bride is, she is Lemul Kotseps only daughter they know you (plural) too. I greet you and your dear husband and son give him 1000 kisses from me.


Far left, vertical (some guessing)
As a souvenir for my cousin (female gender)Gittele and husband
signed Fishel Yizraelovitch

I can't translate the vertical text along the center/

On reviewing the image, I have a change in the translation for the first line. No name in it.

The first line - distanced from the others, says:
L1: Dear Cousin, do you want to know (or "[if] you want to know"
L2: who my bride is

The "name" I couldn't make out was the verb "vilste" (do you want to) "vissen" is to know.
