I think the Yiddish writing on the back of the photo identifies the baby and possibly the mother and grandmother, probably by first name only, but hopefully by last name too. I will appreciate a translation of the Yiddish text on the back of the photo to help me to identify the persons in the photo.

1/20/2013 11:05 PM I can't make out all the words, but I'm sure of the following:
Soreh (i.e. Sara) is sending this postcard of herself, a 14 months old baby and her Aunt to her parents.

The baby may be named, Meishe, but I may be very wrong about that, and the aunt may be named Ester, but I may be very wrong about that as well.

Don't assume it is Soreh's baby -- it may be her aunt's.

Your daughter Sore."

Hope this has helped you.
