#151 Shanghai Architecture Series (in Russian): Darroch Road 多伦路

Having moved past the jubilee issue of the series (150) we arrive at the issue 151, which talks about the past of Duolun Road 多伦路.

In this article: the Scotch build roads to extinguish the dens of iniquity, the Americans build Manchu temples to win the hearts of the locals, the Chinese preachers disapper without a trace, and the Japanese bring in the yakuza to rule with violence and seduction.

The article in Russian (already with a positive comment): https://magazeta.com/arc-darroch-road/
