A lady at work (Claire) has recently lost her father and has found a small picture of him as a child.

She asked me to enlarge the picture (which i have done) and said she would love to know what the text on the rear of the photo said.

I told her i would help if I could. Someone from the fiat forum recommended i try on here.

As I'm not allowed to post URLs i have attached a scan of the picture.

if you want a larger scan just ask.

I am really hoping you can help as Claire is understandably keen to find out what it says.

thanks in advance

    Looks like the last part of the name is الظافر, and the last word is إليك, not لك.

    So the text (minus the signature, which isn't that clear, but Claire presumably knows the name of her father) is the following:

    إلى الأخ عامر عبدالله الظافر
    أهدي تصويري إليك

    To my brother Amer Abdallah Al-Thafer [phonetic transliteration: Aamir Abdullahi 'th-thaafir]
    I present to you my picture as a gift.

    The stamped part says ستوديو المأمون - بغداد (Al-Ma'muun Studio - Baghdad).
