I want to identify the people in the photo on the reverse side. I don't recognize any words except it might be from "Hermin", my grandmother.
The stamp is from the Austro-Hungarian Empire - circa 1903

Hard to read, some words are a mystery to me. Here a translation:

Sender: H. G., 102 Favoritenstrasse, second floor, door number 2.

This is for our dear cousin Rosa.
Where have you been yesterday? We were locked out [from] home, the dear Berczi [I cannot read the rest of the sentence].
How are you, are you doing fine? There is no news to tell you, we are thanks G.d all fine. Please write right away when you get this card.
Unitl then, we all greet and kiss you. Hermin.

Greetings to your dear [can't read the word].

Miss Hermine Kaufer
c/o Mr Moriz Kaufer
paint shop
Vienna, 2nd Borough, 26 Untere Augartenatrasse

The strange thing about this card is that it is sent to Hermine, and is signed by Hermine. The sender is H. G. which could stand for Hermine Gostl which might be the same Hermine as at VM 26459 and VM 26460. Maybe there are two different Hermines.
