      I don't think the fourth/fifth line says "Zavadka 112."  I think it says "Zavadchaj" or "Zavadchan" with the old hard sign "ъ" at the end of the line.  Admittedly, Zavadchaj or Zavadchan is a case ending which is wholly unfamiliar to me in association with the word Zavadka.  But I think that the last letter is definitely a hard sign.  Old Russian/Ruthenian liberally put the hard sign on the end of all manner of words but it is rarely used today.
