Pictures of the old Shanghai


Pictures below are postcards and photos from Shanghai before 1949. I spend a lot of time searching for them in markets specialises shops. Most of the postcards are copies made in the 1980's of the originals. Originals postcards from Shanghai are extremely rare to find for sale in Shanghai nowadays.
