The Gardenia cabaret – two views

It was exciting to find this view of Alexander Vertinsky's Gardenia cabaret (кабаре "Гардения"), which operated between April and September 1937. The building still stands; the addres is 1389 Yuyuan Road 愚园路1389号). Now we have two images of it! A slightly different angle and a crop adds quite a lot to the impression of the scale, the dimensions and the shape of the building, as well as the character of the street.

This is supposed to be summer, but why is the tree so bare?
