The words on the top of the picture I have been informed is in Russian and is the name of a main street in Moscow called 'Tverskaya'. Is there a literal translation of this word and what are the numbers following. I ask as there is some mystery regarding this family member. This is Macwill Rosenberg. He is a Russian subject, probably left there as a young child with his family around 1880. He settled in England, his occupation was a Tailor, he married had children and then returned to Russia leaving his family in England, for what reason and for how long is not known. The only information is that he drowned in a Lake. If anyone can throw any light on this mystery it would be most appreciated.
Thank you very much.

5/9/2013 7:06 PM Tverskaya means "of Tver" - Tver is a city - there is a decent sized Wikipedia article about it. I would guess that 35 is a house number on this street. The date is May 13th. The rest of the numbers are unclear to me, perhaps some sort of an ID number?

an advice: Get ancestry and have a look at
http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?db=BritishArmyService&so=2&rank=0&=%2c%2c%2c%2c%2c%2c%2c%2c%2c%2c%2c%2c%2c%2c%2c%2c%2c%2c%2c&gsfn=macEVill&gsln=ROSENBERG&sx=&gs1co=1%2cAll+Countries&gs1pl=1%2c+&year=&yearend=&sbo=1&sbor=&ufr=0&wp=4%3b_80000002%3b_80000003&srchb=r&prox=1&db=&ti=0&ti.si=0&gss=angs-b

Important: search Macevill Rosenberg - then you get 24 images. In WW1 he was in Russia...
