8/7/2014 10:01 AM (standard pre-printed form, i think it's a t'naim rather than a ketubah)

the blanks are filled in as: thursday, 18th day of iyar, 5694, city of augustovo {?}, groom hayim dov son of barukh of blessed memory, bride hashe libe daughter of barukh tzvi the levite.

the name of the place is just a best guess, because of the yiddish spelling.
8/8/2014 1:53 AM The city is Avgustov = Augustov. Somewhere in the Pale of Settlement?

This is a legally binding marriage contract "ksubbe", not an engagement contract "tnoim".
