Israel and Yetta Milewski

Israel and Yetta (nee Newmark ) Milewski
It may be their wedding picture. A little kitchen table transliteration yielded, I think,  "L.V MITKIN" and "EKATERINOSLAV" for the writing on the bottom (visible in enlarged view).  I don't know what the crest signifies.  Perhaps other Genners have ancestors who patronized Mr. Mitkin.
