German translation needed

I’ve inherited a photograph album that belonged to my ancestor Gustav Adolph Albert Kuhlmey. The album is full of unlabelled and identified photographs. These two photographs have writing on the reverse and I would appreciate any help in translating the inscriptions in the hope that it might help me identify the subjects.

On my flickr page Trace A left the following comment for the photo on the right:

Here is a translation of the writing and words from my friend Stephan. We have also asked German speaking friends to give us their opinion since the writing is in Corrinthstyle but until now no response!
