New upload: Anecdotes of Old Shanghai (1985)


https://archive.org/details/anecdotes-of-old-shanghai-1985

It is a strange but satisfying book, an idiosyncratic assortment of essays, originally written in Chinese, casually touching on various aspects of Shanghai’s historic locations and events, including the Racecourse, Xinwutai Theatre, City God Temple, Longhua Temple, Yuyuan Garden, Great World, Chung Wai Bank, Jiangnan Shipyard, Songjiang Mosque, etc.
