Are these the same letters and do thy mean anything
« on: Thursday 30 May 19 17:31 BST (UK) »
Good afternoon,

This is a big of a long shot, I recently was passed some old family photos and on the back of a couple are names which I am struggling to identify, they both appear to have a couple of letters that I cannot decipher,  one appears to be SM the other EM so I believe, do you agree? Either way I cannot make a name from it. The are from 1929 & 1931. Any thoughts are welcome.

Do you mean the first word on the first snip? If so it's 'In'.

The second one is 'Auntie Em'.
