Wuyi Road reliefs stripped

Shanghai history enthusiasts in the Wechat group 黄浦历保建筑 reported on the stripping of the sanguine-colored relief murals from the walls along Wuyi Road 武夷路. The murals depicted nineteenth-century foreign society members promenading amid western-style residences. Although not old, the Wuyi Road tableaux were not terribly inaccurate. Shanghailanders promenaded, dined and posed, as demonstrated in this staged portait from the late 19th century.

Are revolutionary martyrs coming to replace the Wuyi Road murals?
