This photo was sent to Semyon, who was at the time in the World War I battles. Ekaterina was born 2 years after this picture was taken.

Sorry that the quality of some photographs are pretty poor. The photographs are about 100 years old and are not in great condition. I did my best in cleaning them digitally.
