  On the front page of the foto one can see a school "skola" and another building with the label: "Simseny Obchod Jos. Stranskeho." Is there an explanation why one chooses exactly these buildings on a postcard? One is a public building and the other one a private house, at least this is what I believe. Josef Stransky, who is mentioned on the inscription of the house, was the father to Valerie Stein (born Stransky) and mother to my grandfather Franz Stein, from Statenice. As a kid, Franz Stein, spent some years with his grandparents, this around 1920. I do not really understand Czech and therefore cannot read what Richard Stransky - a son to Josef Stransky - wrote to his sister Hermine Eckstein who lived in Vienna, Austria.
