24797 Interpretation

11/4/2012 4:10 PM I have re-scanned the top part of the photo studio details, as suggested.
Thanks to all who have commented on this photo.
It seems that it WAS taken in Baku.
Does the head of Emperor Nicholas 11 mean that Melikyan had worked for the Imperial family, or what?
Where does it show that a prize was won at the Antwerp International Exhibition? If the Imperial medal is a gold medal from that Exhibition, was Belgium not a separate country then - or am I missing something important here?
The Lion and Unicorn coat of arms looks like part of the English one, while Belgium and Antwerp usually have two lions.....

So glad that I tried Viewmate for first time, a very positive experience. Thank you.

10/31/2012 5:03 PM Photo of young woman taken in photography studio.

Some writing in Russian along with Yiddish or Hebrew.

This was sent to my by the grandchild of my grandfather's uncle? We are trying to figure out how this lady is related. I have the same photo and the Russian was translated to read it was from cousin Dora in Druskininkai to my grandfather Eliezer.

With your help we hope to learn who she was, where she was and how is she related.

Thank you.

24783 Translation - Yiddish

10/31/2012 5:03 PM Picture of a young woman sitting on a blanket at the beach? Probably my husband's mother Frida Fuchs Schonbrun in Israel. She was from Zwolen, Poland and survived labor camps and Buchenwald. She went to Israel 1948?

We hope to learn what the note says and where she was.

Thank you!
