I would appreciate a translation of the comments on the back of the photograph. The girl in the photo is unknown. I am researching the surname Katavusnik. Joseph Katavusnik was a photographer born in 1896 so this may be of family or a client. Possible towns are Arogala, Vilkija, Jubarkas.

A partial translation...."This is my (????tochter???) Zelda Weinitzxxxx?????. If the word in Yiddish is tochter, then Zelda is the daughter of the person sending the photo.

(PS...the text part of the image is upside down and needs to be rotated for reading purposes.)
