a photograph with something written on it

This is a small print only about 4x4 cm. Although I have noticed it when looking through my parent's old photo albums it did not get my attention. A couple of days ago the photo was accidentally dropped to the floor exposing something written on the back of it.

The handwritten text tells me that it is a picture of the house where my father was born in 1905. I have never seen that house, only listened to the stories about the hard times that my father and his brothers and sisters experienced during that time. My grandfather was a bricklayer working in different places where there was work to find. He died from an accident in 1912 and my grandmother was left with a big family during difficult times. 

I guess that the photo was taken around 1955, but I am not sure about the photographer.

By the way - I think it is an excellent photo.

May that's an idea for another "Days" theme!? I'm sure we all have shoe boxes of old pictures around the house...!!?
