Michael Berens' (the photographer) wife Mili with Nellie Lutcher in the "kitchen" of their suite at the Standish Hotel. Mili fed many entertainers after their performances, after the hotel's kitchen had closed for the night. Berens writes of Mili's kitchen: "it was the smallest kitchen imaginable, built in a clothes-cupboard with the smallest refrigerator, a two-hole burner, a bread-box, four shelves and a lot of Mount Royal, canned Dainty Rice."
