Photo Details

This is a cryptic message written in shorthand on the back of one of my great-grandmother Marit Reitan's postcard-photographs.

It was taken in 1917 at Hudson Photo Studio
123 Washington St., Hoboken, NJ

Also on the back are quite a few shorthand characters.

I've asked around and apparently the 3 characters in the lower left hand corner are Gregg Shorthand, while the rest on the right side are Pitman Shorthand.

As my great-grandmother was from Europe, it is possible that some of the markings may have more than one sound!

Mystery: Can you decipher any of this?
