There is something about old Shanghai.
A reader wrote to me for a picture from "In the Mood for Love" Sabrina & Brad posted.
Though the movie is shot in 1960s Hong Kong, the way it is shot (extravagant usage of rickshaws, ladies in qipao, and alleys [nong tang]) immediately draws an association with old Shanghai from the 1920s-1930s era.
Whenever I walked past these old alleys or come across those old Shanghai advertisement posters from that era, i couldn't resist taking a picture of it.
Apparently, I am not the only one. Heres someones that collected more than 500 originals .
Anyone into old Shanghai Jazz as well?
