Another Photo 1929 WithLots of Writing On Back
« on: February 17, 2006, 11:40:14 PM »
Hi,

This is another photo that my grandfather, Alexander Durasov had.  It is dated 1929 on the back with a handwritten message in Russian on the back.  I am hoping that someone could let me know what it says.

Here is the back:



Here is the photo:



I have other photos of the girl from a small child to a young woman and 3 of which have writing on the back as well.  I think her name was Katherine but I am not sure if she was my grandfather's youngest sister or neice.

Thanks again for your help and have a good weekend.

Cynthia :)

Dear Uncle Shura [dimunitive for Alexander]:
I'm sending you my latest photo. I seldom look so serious. Why haven't you written to us for so long? Is everybody well? I kiss you all and am looking forward to your letter at any rate.
Yours, Katya [dimunitive for Catherine].
