I believe this photo is of group of 29 young women in nurses uniforms, likely a class of students at a Jewish nursing school in Warsaw. Sitting on a chair in front of them is an older woman also in a nurses uniform with a dark cape over her shoulders.

My two great-aunts graduated in 1927 from a nursing school associated with the Orthodox Jewish Hospital in Warsaw. Perhaps this is a group photo taken when they started the program? I have another photo of a much larger group of women, which I believe is of the graduating class in 1927. My great-aunts were named Sonja and Feyga. Most if not all of their family had emigrated by the time they entered nursing school.

I have received a translation of the message in Russian. Could you please translate the Polish address and stamped information?
thank you,

Kolo = near, attuched to...
Milosn.(~ik) = something about grace,love, favor...

On the right:
"Dla słuchaczek..." To the students (femine form)...
