Over 3,000 historic images of Shanghai mapped on PastVu

Funeral of the General Vladimir Samoyloff at the Bubbling Well Cemetery

Highlights of this project appear on the Facebook page Mapping Old Shanghai. Among the latest additions to the PastVu gallery there are:

The Blackstone Apartments, which I covered recently:

A series of luscious color stills from Soviet documentaries:

Instances of boating along Route Cardinal Mercier:

More images from Harrison Forman's stashes:

One of the earliest terrace houses in Shanghai – the Ewo Terrace:

Glimpses of seriously opulent lifestyles in the West French Concession:

Some beautifully executed drawings:

And a series of stills from the documentary footage on Route Ferguson:

Other "new" old photographs can be found in the PastVu gallery.

You can use various base maps: Mapnik street map, Google Scheme, Google Satellite or Yandex Satellite (sometimes sharper than Google).

To switch between architectural drawings and photographs, alternate between the photocamera and the landscape icons. To open each image in a new window click the icon with the outgoing arrow, to the right of the landscape icon:
