unidentified postmark


I wonder if a member might put me out of my misery and identify this postmark (on an 1897 cover to England) for me.
I've exhausted what resources I have in a vain attempt to translate what should be a nice, clear postmark. Many thanks in advance of a solution!

This might help:

Just over half way down the page is a replica of what looks like your postmark.

Brilliant! Thanks so much.:rolleyes::):)
Perfect match. My original translation was indeed correct, but of course the city name in Russian is long defunct an I would probably have never gotten the Latvian name without your
skilled assistance.
