Lovely pics. While it's right and proper such delapidated housing (post 185 and before) is demolished, it'd be a rather sad day when they are all replaced with fenced-off apartment complexes and faceless corporate boxes.

It's easy to see there are a lot of fine buildings in this neck of the woods. There is an abundance of open side streets and I hope at some point upon gentrification traffic can be better channelised so some of the little streets can be pedestrianised.

Hongkou and southern Yangpu has a lots of secrets. I did all this by bicycle where subway and bus does not get you.
About your post furhter above: according to my information, the city council has desginated 12 areas with ancient archtiecture as *preserved zones* which shall left untouched. The whole French concession is one of them. Only time will tell, if this really will happen. At least the speed of replaching old by new has obviously decreased in Shanghai.

Excellent compilation, Rich. Visited the city last year for the Expo and was amazed by its pace. These pictures really capture it well. Do you have any photos of the French Concession area?

I live near the French Concession and been there a lot of times this might be why I do not have any photos from it. It is nothing special for me waiting to be discovered. But it is one of the most beautiful areas in Shanghai despite being very snobisitc

I will try to put up some photos of it soon.
