This book provides a glimpse into that world with a mish-mash of photos, newspaper clippings, cartoons and writings to bring back to life those far-off days. There has never been a place like Shanghai -- the layers and depth of richness that the city possesses is extraordinary. This book attempts to give a feel for the world of Old Shanghai. It is not a history book in the usual sense of the term. There is no need to start at page one and read through to the end. It is a jumble of items which evoke the different eras of Old Shanghai.
