Jenny Mai b. March, 30 1892 from near Wiesbaden married Moritz Barmann from Erbenheim. This feldpost card was sent to her, probably by Moritz.
Father of Moritz was Selig Barmann. There is a note on the photo side of the card. I seek a translation and interpretation. The photo seems to pre-date WW 1.

In 1915 Jenny was 23 years old. Before getting married to Moritz Barmann, she might have been dating Adolf ... (who might not have returned from WWI)
