22350 Translation - Yiddish

4/11/2012 4:16 PM I submitted this earlier b/w and it was hard to read. I was asked to resubmit with a gray scale. Perhaps you can now see the entire article and fill in the blanks.

The following is the first translation:

The text with my comments in brackets, a series of X's stands for text I can't make out:

For sale a junk shop, ["junk shop" in English in the original] in Danbury Conn.. will be sold with or without [?]the stock [""stock" in English] lets you make a good living, can save you XXXX XXXX yearly [?], will show the buyer how to manage the business ["business" in English]
XXX XXXX.


Thank you in advance for your time.
Unfortunately this is the best copy that I have I retrieved the clipping from an online database.

22347 Translation - Yiddish

4/11/2012 4:15 PM I think that this is a postcard sent to my great grandfather, Simon Reich, from his sister Gitla Reich Mandel. Simon was born in Ranizow in 1875 and had arrived in NYC in 1896. Is there any information on family members, or on Ranizow?
I really appreciate any input! I just found this among my mother's photos during our Passover gathering at her home.
