#91 Shanghai Architecture Series: Joint Savings Society (Union Building); in Russian

This Russian-language article draws on Michelle Qiao's article for Shine and archival newspapers. It puts the construction of the Union Building into the context of the transformation of the business district in the 1920s and uses rarely seen historic photographs of the interiors. (I'll be adding summaries for my Russian articles from now on.)
