112 historic drawings of Shanghai on a map

How many historic drawings of Shanghai do you know? Here is over a hundred pictures pinned to a map. These are architectural drawings, sketches, elevations, watercolor paintings, cartoons, paper models, bird's-eye views, etc, clipped from newspaper articles, ads, posters, magazines, map atlases, books and even luggage labels. To see the drawings in hi-res click anywhere on the images below to be taken to the full list.

I have lots more, and I'll be adding them in the future.
