This is the back of the photo of my grandmother Sarah Kotel's siblings and presumed cousins. I am assuming that the writing is Russian, but am not sure. Thank you for any help you can provide.

10/26/2010 10:56 AM Sonia I send you a photograph,not a beautiful one because they photograph badly here.Near me stands Leon's nephew Abraham. From the other side stands his girlfriend, and between Usher and Mira her brother. But don't think that we are so unpretty, we just don't look good in the picture. I even didn't want to send it but mother made me, she wanted you to look at it. No matter how, she wanted you to have it.

10/26/2010 2:40 PM Sonya, I am sending you this card (can't read this word), because in our place they make cards of poor quality. Next to me is standing Leon's nephew Avrahm, on his other side is standing (can't read this word), and between Usher and Mira is her brother.
But please don't think that (can't read next two words), because the card is of poor quality. I did not want to send it to you, but mom insisted I send it, since she wanted you to see us.

10/27/2010 12:03 AM Sonya, I am sending you this unattractive card, because in our place they don't take good photos. Next to me standing is Leon's nephew Avrahm, on the other side standing is his girlfriend, and between Usher and Mira is her brother.
But don't think that we don't look nice, it's because the the photo is not good. I did not want to send it to you, but mom insisted I send it, since she wanted you to see us no matter what.
