this is essentially a sample/test from my end.
the picture i'm attempting to attach has been identified as 'liliana grahan' from a group of russian post cards. from what i can read in the fine print on this image - i don't have the original in my possession - the name is not written in russian.
idly i'm just wondering if this could be somehow related to lucille grahn.
any thoughts?

Neednt be so strange at all. "Gran" or "Grahn" is not an unusual name in Scandinavian countries (it means fir-tree). In the beginning of last century there were large Scandinavian communities in St. Petersburg. Speaking of Sweden now, it was very poor, people were literally starving, and the period around 1850-1920 approx. masses of people emigrated. There were two distinct groups of emigrants. Crofters and people without a trade went to the US, people with a trade went east. There is still a large community in St-P. with Swedish names and these days they are allowed to search for their roots. Evening classes in Swedish are popular and I was actually guest teacher during my visit there.
So, highly unlikely that it should be a relative of the Danish ballerina.
