Does anyone recognize anyone or anything that may help me to identify these family members?

This came from my great grandmother's photo album (Monya nee Izralowicz Koltonski "Kolt").

I am also posting additional images that appear to be of the seated man at different times in his life.

This could also have been taken in Warsaw or Lodz or Sosnowiec. The families originally came from the towns noted above.

Thank you very much.

Karen Wyman

5/3/2013 11:57 AM The picture is taken in studio (atelier) what was common in the days when photpgraphy was too complicated for an amateuor.
There is a chance that on the back there is a stamp of the studio which usually included the name of the town.
If you find a stamp or another indication of the town it may narrow your search.

PS.Taking a picture was an event and people used to dress up for the visit at the studio.
