Dear Genners:

I've posted a photo and an inscription (28244 & 28245). I'd appreciate:

1) information about the man--about when would the photo have been taken,
what kind of outfit is he wearing (is it military garb)? I'm assuming he's
an ancestor, possibly >from Kyiv or the environs, perhaps Radomyshl.

2) word for word (direct) translation of the inscription on the back of the
photo.

Both were affixed to a plate-like card measuring 2.5" x 4", which may help
pinpoint the period during which the photo was taken.

You can view both at the following address:

Thank you very much.
