Strange writings on a foto of a Landser

Post by Christoph Awender » 05 May 2003 17:01

Hello!

On the bottom of a foto I found this strange (russian?) writing on the bottom. On the back the foto is like a normal postcard with lines for address and so on.
Can anyone help with it?

Could this be due to the fact that the picture came fron Russia. Germany used the facilities of captured towns/Cities for clothing production, vehicle repairing, photography, etc. If a Russian photography buisiness was allowed to stay in operation, there is no doubt soldiers would have made use of it.

The left one reads foto-technika ("photo-technics", a kind of company or organisation name probably). I can't decipher the right one without a dictionary. Please remind me via PM, and I'll reply within two weeks (when I can get my hands on a dictionary). Could you provide a better scan?

The right hand text looks like an address to me. If I am right the company Foto-Tekhnika would be found at Nish Obrenovicheva 87. That would mean ( I think) the Lower Obrenovich Street. I have no idea where this kind of street would be but a Google search gave me the name of Milos Obrenovich, who was a Serbian prince (1780—1860) and the founder of the Obrenovich dynasty.
