This image is dedicated to Betti SACHS, a relative, in French. I would like to know what M. Padilla's given name is. I think the dedication reads "Mlle. Betti Sachs, all my affection, from her Escamillo". This may not merely be figurative - there is a family tradition Mlle. Sachs sang before her marriage. The picture was taken in Aachen [Aix-la-Chapelle at some times]; Wroclaw used to be Breslau & in Germany

"Melle Betty Sachjs
Souvenir affectueux
de son Escamillo
Mariano de Padilla
[illegible signature]"

I would translate :
"Miss Betty Sachjs
Affectionate remembrance of her Escamillo
Mariano de Padilla
[illegible signature]"


So as far as I can read, Mariano is the given name and it seems this is the picture of Mariano Padilla y Ramos, a Spanish singer.

According to the dedication, it seems he met Miss Betty Sachs while performing the role of Escamillo in the Carmen opera by Georges Bizet.
