Shanghai history and architecture

Downtown Shanghai is undergoing many changes under the pretext of restoring the original look of the streets, but these changes are often far from positive. One of the recent examples is the beautiful shady grove that used to line Changle Rd, at the corner of South Shaanxi Rd. I didn't photograph it at the time, and now it's too late: all the beautiful pines, palmtrees and grasses all been cut down, to make way for a preposterous commercial development.
