    Appols for the totally un-food-related question. Can anyone make this out enough to translate what is written on the back of this photo? I would really appreciate it if anyone can read it:

    I will try my best. That is an old handwriting and some of the letters are not "that" familiar to me. I will ask my DW Inge, she can read these old handwriting much btter than I do. Is it possible to tell us a little what on the pic. This might gives us a hint what could be written on the back.

    The last word in the first row could be "‹berblick" (overview). Does that make any sense in relation to the photo?

    This is the picture, though I'm not sure it helps. It is my grandfather Max in the German armed forces.

    Hi,
    This Is A no longer taught form of hand writing.
    I write what I could read, put in brackets ( ) what I could rather guess and make dots... where I can't either.

    "Dieses ist ein kl. ‹berblick
    von mein(em) M(ax). Leider habe
    ich nicht viel (an) Bildern von
    Ih(m)."

    "This is a little overview of my Max. Unfortunately I have not a lot of pictures of him."


    The word Max is a male first name. There is no other german three-letter word that I could imagine, but it could be an abbreviation like the word "kl." which is short for "klein" (small/little). I would have guessed the last word to read actually "Ihnen" (them) not "Ihm" (him), but that would not make too much sense.

    What makes me slightly unsure is that today you would not say that a picture is an "overview" (‹berblick) of a person.

    Hope this helps. icon_smile.gif
