    I have recently acquired a postcard of a dance band, with written on it: “Mayfair Serenaders, Bombay, 1933.”

    I’ll happily send you a scan of this if you can let me have a viable e-mail address to which to send it.

    Hi Naresh,

    I just started reading your book which I am enjoying immensely. I am the author of several books on the history of the jazz age in Shanghai including Shanghai’s Dancing World and Shanghai Nightscapes. I am planning to visit Mumbai soon and would like to meet you if possible, ditto if you ever come to Shanghai (happy to give you my historical tour of the jazz scene). Please email me if you get a chance. –Andrew
