As I learned >from fellow Genners, Bangasse does *not* mean Austria.
This, then, is the word that I am not sure of its meaning. I searched
in Google, 'Bangasse', and it is a place in Africa. Can anyone out there
guess what my ggrandfather meant, when he wrote this?
Could this be Bahngasse, meaning Railroad Street?
