hkskyline's 2009 SHANGHAI Photo Collection #6

The Shanghai Municipal History Museum is well-worth a visit and is situated just below the Oriental Pearl Tower.


It has quite a variety of exhibits showcasing Shanghai's history. First, some historic vehicles.









Quite big banners along yesterday's streets.









The old buses could even fit a 3rd class.















There are also plenty of life-sized exhibits showing the different Shanghainese trades.





















The West has arrived in Shanghai!





A French sign marking the French Concession boundary.



Notice even the street name in the French Concession was ... French.



Another bounday stone for the Americans.





Opium imported by the British would prove disastrous for China.









Who want to visit the brothel?
