I am looking for a translation of the words in the upper left portion of the back of this photograph. The front (not pictured here) is of three people - A man, woman and 3-5 year old girl. I don't know who the people are, or who it is addressed to, except it does say it's in Lodz, in 1949, so I assume they are Reichman relatives, after WWII.

Pytla is a feminine name, and Jakub is a masculine name [Polish for Jacob]
2/12/2013 4:17 AM And the date is 14 June 1949, followed by the name of the town of Łódź.
