Thanks for the pics, there's a thread related to it but it seems there are very few good quality photos around of old shanghai. http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=365177

By the way, in the pic posted below (from the previous page) in the front are the Thompson Riviera apartments. They were being investigated by the govt because they have sold so few apartments, which is viewed as hoarding, but really it's because they're too expensive. Anyway they have renovated one of the towers for serviced apartments, the most expensive is now 120,000 rmb per month!!!

That has to be the most amazing shot I have ever seen. It shows the elegance of the SWFC, JM & Pearl Tower beautifully.

Really defines the word "Skyscraper".

I love the design of the tower but one disadvantage is that the tower bends inward toward the top so from the ob deck to look straight down to the street below would be difficult. There's also limit of what can be seen from the lower ob deck.

Are these shots from the skybridge of SWFC. I wonder how magnificent Pudong would look in a night shot!

This is so true! I actually never thought of that. Hopefully we can actually look down to the street from the 2 edges :-)
