12852 Do you recognize?

5/31/2009 This is a photo of my grandmther. I believe her name is Alice, but I don't know her last name. I think her younger daughter lives in Canada and her name may be Roslyn. Her older daughter is Gloria Wise" and she lives in Illinois. I'm looking for the younger daughter in Canada. View the post, there are no responses
12853 Interpretation

5/31/2009 Photo long regarded by my family as depicting my ancestor Abraham Aaron Isaac, b. 1846 in Prussia (possibly in Budzyn). The photo may be matted on a non- contemporaneous hard back (with the word De Silva printed in the corner). Family lore had it that Isaac was a name-change from something like Bresh.

Handwritten vertically on the rear of the photo appears to be the name "Aron Itzig." Stamped on back is the name Alfred Goldschmidt, an address in Berlin, and what seems to be a telephone number. The issue is that I don't know of any family from Berlin, no less family that would have been there late enough to have had a phone number, and thus am very confused about the providence of the photograph.

Any information on the person depicted in the photograph, the possible name change, or Alfred Goldschmidt and the stamp on the reverse of the picture - or simply any suggestions for further research - would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
