At his Witt's end to find photo details

STEVE LOW, of Massachusetts, wants help identifying people on the wedding photograph.

The picture, circa 1900, is labelled - in his mother's handwriting - "Part of the Wittner family in Manchester, England".

It was in the possession of Steve's grandmother Anna Wittner, who emigrated to America from Iasi (Jassy), Romania, in 1900.

Steve has been told that the picture may have been taken at Manchester's Great Synagogue.

On the back is Kleppers Photo Studio with the address 8b Bury New Road, Manchester.

He has checked online, but can't any reference to a Wittner wedding in Manchester at the time.
