Hello Shanghai

Shanghai Pavilion

Displayed in front of the Shanghai Pavilion is an example of the fine architecture that you used to be able to find all over the city. These were in the traditional late 19th, early 20th century style - the ShiKuMen type of building. Unfortunately, entire neighbourhoods have been razed for the sake of urban development, but a few of the finer examples have been preserved. Beautiful, no?
