Vertinsky with friends in a restaurant (1943)

Interesting auction find – "Alexander Vertinsky with friends in a restaurant in Shanghai, 17 December 1943."

The back of the photo has the word "Кавказ" crossed out and corrected to "Шанхай". The interior, indeed, does not look like the Kavkaz Restaurant – more like the Renaissance. The date could be a little off: according to the memoir of Lydia Vertinskaya, the family left China for the USSR on 4 November 1943, on the Dairen Maru.
