An interview with the Mandrigins


I first got in touch with them after this post, and this year brother and sister revisited Shanghai that they left as teenagers. The interview contains wonderful photographs of Shanghai in the 1940s and 1950s.

Grouchy Realty on the corner of Route Doumer and Avenue Joffre, photographed by Jack Birns in 1949. When I added it on the PastVu map I did not know this was Mandrigins' business.
