Remembered Today:

Can anyone help me identify what is written?

I have an image from a Romanian documnent from 1910, connected to the Ministry of War, but I can not recognise what is written. It would help on a little study I recently began about the history of Romanian army and its aviation.

It is possible to be Farman MF.11. They were used by the Romanian aviation. Thank you for help! What about the first image, on the "EMPLOYER" section?

Looks to me like "Dr. Porn of the Ministry of War", which I assume is someone's name.

 

 

That's what I was thinking too, but sounds strange for a name. I have never met this name neither for an English or a Romanian.

And for adress, it looks like " Strada Ponnel Vardisi / București", but I have not found any mention about a street name or any other thing called like that.

Porn is a Jewish family name I think.

Well done Dave, shows the name is more likely than Morar thought.

I'm no longer sure about the "Dr" though.  It doesn't look like Ml (i.e. Marcel), could it be "Dl"?  Did Marcel have a relative? Is there a forename that abbreviates to Dl (e.g. Daniel)?

More research on the name needed! 

Also, if the address is Strada Pomnel Vardici then I think this can be translated from Romanian to read "Street called Vardi" or something like that?

Firstly, I thought on the name it was written "Dl", an abreviation commonly used for "Domnul" ("Mister" in English), which would so translate as "Dl. Porn"/ "Mr. Porn". But I may be wrong...
