Followed by two signatures :
- the first one begins with the syllable Ru, the second syllable, lost in the printed text, could be lia, so it would be Rulia
- the second signature is Sasha (diminutive for masculine Alexander as well as for feminine Alexandra)

In the down left corner, the date : May 31st 1912
9/13/2016 5:59 PM The photo was taken at the Tseytlin studio in Konstantinograd (now Krasnohrad). There are Russian and Ukrainian Internet sites with other photos from that area and time, including from this studio, but it seems hard to locate them by searching in English.
