Yad Vashem photo collection

Yad Vashem Photo Collection has over 250 photos of Shanghai, mostly of the Jewish neighborhood in Hongkou, but also of some central streets, places, interiors, and many individuals. There are detailed captions with attribution and abundant info on the provenance. The images are in relative high-res, especially those in Horst Eisfelder's and Beatrice Reubens' collections.
