The Cercle Sportif Français: Elite cosmopolitanism in Shanghai’s Former French Concession

Reposting the newest entry from the HPC blog, which studies the French Club. Also, sharing a photo that I saw in an old newspaper last night. Because we don't only want to look at murals and sculpture, do we?
