Forthcoming Titles – December 2011

December 11, 2011

℗ Pictures From History

Old Shanghai was China‘s richest and most corrupt city. At its heart were the International Settlement and the French Concession – islands of affluence and colonial privilege set amidst a sea of poverty and deprivation. Yet Shanghai was also China’s most progressive and innovative city, home to Chinese cinema, modern music and a flourishing literary scene. You can see a unique collection of more than 200 images of Old Shanghai in the 1920s and 1930s – politicians, prostitutes, gangsters, warlords, popular singers, writers, refugees, artists and the city they lived in at Pictures From History‘s OLD SHANGHAI page.
