OLD SHANGHAI ARCHITECTURE WALKING GUIDE

The Where’s Where of the Who’s Who of Old Shanghai by Kate Baker, Patrick Cranley, Spencer Dodington, Tess Johnston, Tina Kanagaratnam, and Carolyn Robertson.

“It is so full of reminiscences for me, and provides  such rich background material for each area. You did a great job in presenting Shanghai today with an in-depth view of how it was in a totally different era.” – Isaiah Zimmerman, born in Shanghai 1930.
