This is the back of an unidentified photo. I would appreciate a translation of what is printed here as well as what is hand written in pencil in the top right hand corner.

Negatives retained.

The handwriting merely repeats Nesvizh, M. G (Minsk Guberniya.
The names of the subjects of the photo do not appear.

Many photos that I have seen have similar details on the back, with no connection to the people photographed. The town of the photographer may indicate where the people lived, but not necessarily so, as they may have travelled to the photographer or he to them.
