Video: Shanghai – city of contrasts and confusion!

This video of Shanghai in 1947 has grabbed the attention of a few lately so I’m getting on the bandwagon. According to the original poster of the video it was shot in the short period after WWII when the concessions were closed (1946) and just before the communists rode into town (1949).

It’s an interesting look at the city. If you look closely then you’ll notice how the more things have changed the more they’ve stayed the same.
