Black and white Fridays

Wanda Stopa (image)
I’m back with a black and white Friday post! A while back my uncle sent me this photo collage from the Chicago Tribune about “a good girl gone bad.” It’s the story of Wanda Stopa, a young Polish woman who was Chicago’s first woman assistant U.S. district attorney. Unfortunately that was short lived when she killed her lover’s gardener, and then committed suicide. It’s a tragic story, but worth a peek if you like reading sordid stories from the past (and really, who doesn’t?).
