Surnames: Walter, Hall, Loll
Pictured is my great great grandfather, Wilhelm Walter husband to Elisabeth Hall and father of Elisabeth Walter Loll. I do not have much info about Wilhelm. I do know his wife was born in 1892. So I would assume this would be from WWI or before.

Sorry for any quality problems. I do not have a copier and this is a photo of a copy of the original.

It looks to be German navy enlisted uniform around the time period of WW1. There doesn't appear to be any rank markings on the collar patches so I would say he was a seaman. This photo was probably a souvenir photo taken sometime after he enlisted in the navy.
