Hello. This is the back of a photo of my gg grandmother from Seirijai. I'm guessing that she sat for it between 1910 and 1920 but that is a guess. I would be grateful for a full translation of the photographer and address, as well as the handwriting. Many thanks!

Rosenthal House, 67 Bazarnaya Ploshchad (Market Square), Suvalki
I wonder whether the photo may be a bit older than you think
10/11/2016 2:03 AM The stamp reads:
Foto P. Ostrovski
Suwalki
Bazarnaya Place (Market place)
House Rozental Nr 67

the upper handwriting reads:
as is Seghl

It seems to be a jiddisch transliteration.

I have trouble to recognize the lower one.
