This writing is on the back of a photograph of one of my ancestors from Russia (Ukraine). I would love to know what it says. I am also posting separately the front of the photograph as it also has writing. It can be seen at ViewMate at the following address ...

Comments:

 

It is written in Russian, but with mistakes, conjugate not enforced, Word “Memory (Память)” not spelling right.  It’s common for Jewish people, they know Yiddish well but not Russian.  And this region – Lutsk, is was a lot of Polish spiking people there and it is not help to spell Russian better.
