 In the 1940s Wises Street Directory there is a listing for 'Dixieland Cabaret" at 69 Tutanekai Street, does anyone remember this venue? It seems to have been the place everyone went in the 1920s as articles appear in the Auckland Star, The Evening Post and New Zealand Herald mentioning the dances that took place.
