Three pictures of Fuyou Rd

The historic photo is from China Revolutionized (1913). Possibly, it was not taken in Shanghai, but the location looks very similar to Fuyou Rd, right behind the north wall of Yuyuan Garden. The road was paved over an old creek in 1906, and for a while foreigners knew it as New Maloo.The image in the middle is from the 1980s.
