It is always frustrating when you can’t track the names on a photograph. Sadly, that is the case with these two young men. I haven’t had any success in finding them.

The names Julian and Walter Baczyski are written on the back of this postcard photo. I believe this is a First Communion photograph. The boys are holding rosaries and prayer books, and are adorned with the white armbands. They appear to be 6-8 years old, maybe?

Julian and Walter Baczyski

The postcard is circa 1901-1907, per the description of real photo postcards with the non-divided back. *See Postcard History – Smithsonian Institute Archives.
