Old photo

It probably was taken in Russia/Estonia/Latvia/Lithuania during Russian Civil War by one of my ancestors.
I'm sure this place exists today - I saw it on the poster few years ago. But place was not specified on the poster otherwise I wouldn't ask this.

There is some handwriting on the bottom of the picture but I can't read it.

Do you have a time machine? Without one I'm not sure what relevance this question has to Travel? – Doc Mar 16 '14 at 6:17
This place still exists. You don't have to have time machine). – IgorStack Mar 16 '14 at 6:53
Where did you get it? What are you reasons for finding out? I realise we have other similar questions about identifying places to visit, but that's generally because those places still exist to visit... – Mark Mayo Mar 17 '14 at 7:08
Have you try to read text in bottom of this image? – MikkaRin Mar 17 '14 at 8:06
The reason to find it is just curiosity. Tried to read - no luck. – IgorStack Mar 18 '14 at 17:04
