This seems to indicate a photography studio in Austria   Possibly someone  named David   The date is May six or fifteen or sixteen in 1933
I’m puzzled because in Europe the numerical date of the month is usually written in the second section. Maybe it’s June fifth?
Hope this helps

The town is apparently Ostrowiec Poland.

The date looks like 5/6 1933 which is June 5th, the mess around the 6 looks like a correction from 5/5 to 5/6.

I'm not familiar with the Polish language, but I believe the word before the date is something like "the" or "dated" not the name David.
