ViewMate translation request: Yiddish, Russian or German? #translation


Ancestry Mail
 

I've posted a vital record in a language that might be Yiddish, German or Russian.  (I do not know.)  I need a few small translations. It is on ViewMate at the following 4 addresses:
 

I have several photos taken in Zagare, Lithuania, around 1875-1900, and 1 in Petrograd, Russia in 1915 (I think).  The back/reverse side of these photos contain text or a stamp containing text that  might include useful information that will help me identify the person in the photograph on the reverse side--e.g., the photographer, the photographer's address, city location, year of business, etc.   
 
Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.

Thank you very much.

Photo #4 was taken by V. Shteinberg.  There is a possibility that this is Vladimir Shteinberg, who had a photo studio in Dvinsk / Dinaburg, currently Daugavpils in Latvia.  Perhaps this photo was taken before he had a studio or maybe he was on the road when the photo was taken.  It doesn't have the typical border around the photo with the name of the studio listed on the bottom, unlike his numerous photos that can still be found on the Internet.
His son Yakov was a war photographer during WWI and Civil War, working for various publications.
