writing is legible, and is repeated for all four passengers.

I haven't had any luck using the JewishGen tools, does anyone recognize this
place?
Town is Traby, pron. [troh nbyh] currently located in Belarus., used to be in
Oshmiany uyezd, Vilna Guberniya.

In Poland during the interwar period.

Please pay attention to Yiddish town identification. Teth-Resh-Alef-Beth-Jod
is read as "Trawi"
