A nice danzón by Aniceto Diaz. Performed by Max Dolin, Mexico, 1921
El teléfono a larga distancia

I could not find lyrics to explain the title.
It is always a bit funny to see old things with a back-then modern name.
"Garage Moderne", "Hôtel Moderne"= most hotels/garages with shabby 1930's flair in rural french areas.
"Amour et TSF" (love and wireless), song by Gaston Ouvrard, 1929 , almost impossible to understand for today's youth.
