I would appreciate a translation of all the text if possible. This is on the back of a newly discovered photo which appears to show my paternal grandfather as a young man. He is standing next to a horse-drawn carriage belonging to Boston Store. I’m reasonable sure this is the one in Chicago as that is where he lived between leaving the Villna region and coming to the UK. His name was Abraham Abramovitch, later Abrams. His parents’ names were Ida and Aaron, his sisters Mirrel and Yetta. The card may have been written to, or by, one of them. Having any of this text in English would be an enormous gift - thank you
