Czech writing on back of American soldier photo, c. 1910.


Recommended Posts

This is a photograph of a United States soldier in the Coast Artillery Corps, circa 1910. I don't know the language of the writing on the back. Is it Czech?

Thanks,

Yes, it's Czech. I can't make it all out, but it basically says "This is my friend who says he knows our ... He is now a cook....... and his name is William Schraeder." It's been over well over 25 years since I studied Czech, but I am confident this is a decent gist.
