A Closer Look (Part 71)

Tauragė, Lithuania, about 1905. This is my Mom's paternal Grandmother, Wanda. Mom remembers Wanda always wore gold-hoop earrings.

Here's the original post.

And I always thought Wanda was one of those Hollywood American nicknames.

Was it short for something else?

As far as I know, it's not. There are many "Vandas" (with a "V") in Lithuania. It's also a common name in Poland.
