JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Help identify locality on postcard #general


JNB <jnblank@...>
 

I have placed a postcard on ViewMate
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=8102
and would much appreciate help in identifying the locality on the photograph.

The card was sent by my maternal grandfather, David MIRMOVITSCH, during
WW I - probably in 1916 - to my grandmother, living in Helsinki
(Helsingfors), Finland.My gf had been conscripted to the Russian army in
Finland and was sent with his unit to somewhere in Eastern Europe, >from
where he sent this postcard.


For those of you who read Yiddish:
I have also scanned and posted the reverse side of the card
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=8103
The text in Yiddish mentions some localities which I'm unable to
identify. Perhaps this might help, assuming there is a direct link btw
the places mentioned in the text and those on the photo.

I would much appreciate any help. Please answer privately to:
