Can anyone help explain what is it? (The other side of this picture from 1911)

No, it is impossible to find other details, if you don't know the name of the person. Here, as I see, you know fortunately who is this.

I have similar problems with old photos. If nobody made any explantions, you have only to guess.

I have made the conclusion after all this problems: we have to write everything on the photos, fro our descendance car identify us, Olga

Thanks Olga. My findings so far clame that the man name is "Israel Sher" and he is from Ukrane. No one knows if it is true and who wrote the words on the card and to whom...Current thinking is that he was the brother of my grandmother who left Ukrane and came to Israel in 1920...

Thanks for the kind and caring comment.

In principle it is possible to look for the registration books, but it is necessary to know from where they were, who registred the Jews (the Orthodoxes were registered in churches), moreover, if the lands were under occupation during the war, the archives could disapper, as well as it could occur before, during the revolution. Many things should be known, but if you really want, it is possible to try. First address to the Ukraininak Embassy on the location of the archives, ask their advice, and so on... Olga

Olga, I see you are suggesting Oronbb to look for something in the archives even he doesn't know what he will look for. And even at the end he find the name of this girl-woman she probably is not alive anymore, don't forget that this happened almost 100 year from this date and if the woman is alive she should be at about 125-130 years which I think is impossible!

There are many other much more important things in our life today that we should do I think!

I think it is better to leave this nice memory in the past and to save only this wonderful card of this man like a memory that the love exited and exists also in our days!

My best wishes to both of you! And my Y* to save this nice memory also in my archives!
