    Help with photo inscription

    On New Year's Eve I met a friend of a friend named Noelle. She is an Argentine but her relatives are Russian Jews. Her grandfather lived in what is now the country of Moldova. She has a treasured photo of him which she showed to me. She think's that it was taken someplace near his hometown in Moldova. There is Russian on the back and she would love to find out what it says. Any help deciphering the handwriting and/or translating would be appreciated.

    Here is my horrible guess at what is written:

    Доброй Аниъ(?)

    ой(?) Валоди [this is her grandfather, Валодя]

    Клишиеб(ь?),

    ???? 1922

    You can view the image here:

    Many thanks!

    Доброй Анне
    от Володи
    Кишинев
    25 июля 1922 г.

    To kind Anna
    from Volodya
    Kishinev
    July 25, 1922

    Written in Russian in old (pre-revolutionary) orthography
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?
