楼多了几个,人也多了起来 {more and more buliding and people in Shenzhen}


可是还是很荒芜 {but it was still being desolate}


就要修深南大道了 {Shennan avenue was under construction}


深南大道出现了,不过还是土路 {the oriented Shennan avenue appeared}


深南大道更像样了,还铺上了柏油 {Shennan avenue was improved}


这时的深圳还像一个破破烂烂的小县城 {Shenzhen still looked like a small town}


深圳的速度,一天一个样,带动了城市的全面发展 {"Shenzhen Speed" made Shenzhen different everyday}



经济进一步高速发展,高楼大厦也一栋栋拔起,快速赶上了各大城市 (Catching up the big cities in China)


经济迅速发展的深圳,吸引了全国各地大量人口的涌入 {rapidly development attracted a lot of people flowed in Shenzhen from every part of China)
do you know when these pciture where taken?
1981 to 1987...?

thanks, last but one could also be early 90s. I am very interested in the 1980s China, a time when everything started to change albeit at a much more modest pace than in the 1990s

Second pic from the end the tower on the right is under construction. So if you know the name of that tower, you probably figure the date of u/c (and the date of the pic too)

That's not Today's Shenzhen. I couldn't find Kingkey 100 Tower (shenzhen's current tallest building) anywhere in the Photo, the photo was taken at least 3 years ago.

Here are some more recent photos from Shenzhen
