BLURB

Every Chinese city is itself a chaotic map of China. Beijing Roads and Nanjing Roads, Qingdao Roads and Tibet Avenues. Hankou Roads crossing Shanghai Roads and Ninghai Roads, connecting all parts of the country together. It’s the same with Shanghai. You’ll never feel like China has left you alone. Wherever you go, you are always here. Let’s take Moganshan Road as an example. It’s one of the most eclectic parts of the most eclectic Chinese cities. Moganshan once was one of the most luxurious places in China filled with the foreign elite wanting to escape the heat of the Shanghai summer in huge villas around the mountains. Moganshan Road was filled with factories producing textile and flour to meet the elite’s needs. Lying between Yichang Road and Changshou Road, just besides the Suzhou Creek, it ironically brings closer the old opulent life of the Shanghai with the long decades of cumbersome industrialization. Two different societies that would never meet. Things have changed since then, but you’ll see the remnants of the past as you walk along the wall. [Andras Gal]
