    Hello Mr. Drozdov,

    I am a friend of Maxim Maruta (Misha) in Beijing. I would like to talk to you about ice hockey in Shanghai.
    Please let me know if we can talk sometime.

    My name is Jeremy and I was a veey clos friend to Nina Schudnat who lived with hwr aunt Lydia and uncle Nicolai in Haebin and Shanghai. You have a photograph of The Mandrygin family against the backdrop of the Cathedral. Shanghai, 1956. I have the exact same photograpgh which came to me via hundreds of others when Nina passed away in 2002 age 86. I have spent a substantial amount of any free time I had over the last twenty years studying Nina’ journey.

    This is what is written on the back of the photograph…

    Haven’t written a word since departure – very resentful! My heart aches for us. Emma Karl has died (August). I am afraid that it is very hard for M. both emotionally and financially! Lydia’s sickness – one after another. How are you? Are you well? We hope to see you in person. Dear Nina I appeal to you to reckon in your mind to where and to whom we need to come with request upon arrival so that we could find a decent job for Petre. If it is possible, bespeak on our behalf in an introductory letter. All who have written that it is IMPORTANT.

    I gope this is of interst to you and others. I would like to have a brief email chat if you’re interested. I have some wonderful images of White russians in Harbin including some of fame.

    Yours with sincerity
    Jeremy Keane
