The disappeared Dongjiadu

St. Xavier's Cathedral has lost all of its neighbors: Catholic schools for boys and girls, the guildhall for brine and pickle makers, and multiple lane neighborhoods.

Nancang Jie serves as a division line between the demolished eastern part and the surviving western part.

The last house on Jimao Nong is still lived in.

The disappeared street network is still faintly visible.

Sea Merchants' Guildhall (Shanchuan Huiguan) is now completely alone.
