Translation of written information on back of photo

Post by JOHN08 » 14 May 2012, 06:30

I found a photo of a possible relative with writing on the back.

Any help with the translation would be appreciated.

John

Livio,
Thanks for the translation; I now know the name of the relative: "Dora Esterina Mizii. How would this photo be used by the person? She came to America in December 1919.
