Zglinska, Gosia <gosia@...>

It looks to me like a surname (Slavic, female as the ending changes
according to the gender - thus "ska" is for a woman and "ski" for a man).
Most probably the first word (the unclear one) is the first name and the
second is the family name of the owner of the shop.

Dear all.

What is "Szolynska" ? Or "Szolyrska" ?

It is written as second word (the first is not clear) on a shop >from
around 1900, >from Rogasen (Rogosno), Posen province, Prussia.
