20 Suzhou Bei Lu, near Dongdaming Lu


August 12, 1937 marked the beginning of the Battle of Shanghai, with Japanese shelling along the banks of the Suzhou Creek. What war didn’t destroy, gentrification will, so join Historic Shanghai to explore the surprisingly rich legacy of this hard-working part of town, as told through its architecture – from bravely fought battles to Art Deco banking warehouses, a neoclassical Chinese chamber of commerce, historic bridges, the lane of the hardware merchant, and a look at what the future holds for the iconic Shanghai lilong.
