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.
In the final edition of Tess Johnston’s much-loved walking guide series, she and her co-authors take us on walks throughout the city that uncover the colorful characters of old Shanghai – the “who’s who” of the title. These fascinating profiles of the men and women who lived in these historic buildings bring the walks to life. The book is illustrated with beautiful photographs and includes maps of each walk. Chapters:
- Behind the Bund: Taipan Territory
- Wukang Lu: Paradise Lost and Found
- Hongkou: Perpetually on the Fringe
- Changle Lu: Motorcars, Moguls and Migrants
- Around the Racecourse: Cabarets, Christians and Champagne Days
