Old Italian Club on Great Western Road

This shot from 1995 shows the old Italian Club in the center (238 West Yan’an Road 延安西路238号), the Hudec-designed autidorium behind it (demolished) and the Italian-owned New Royal Hotel in the background, right, (2004 West Nanjing Road 南京西路2004号).

Xinmin Wanbao Wechat post, in Chinese, profiles the old Italian Club, on Great Western Road, illustrating it with historic photos culled from PastVu. It also shows glamour shots of the recently renovated building. I've still not translated my essay about Italian haunts in old Shanghai, so here's the blog link to the article in Russian.
