Shanghai - I ♥ Shanghai

A shot taken at the corner of Middle Zhejiang Road (浙江中路) and Nanjing East Road (南京东路). See where this picture was taken.. [?]

 

The building on the right is the Yong'An Department Store (aka: Wing On Building) - click here for more about it.

 

The narrow, 19-story tall building with the Giordano™ "I ♥ Shanghai" advertisement is the "Seventh Heaven Hotel" (七重天宾馆). It was built in 1932 by the same brothers that founded the Wing On Group and at the time of it's construction it was just called the "new wing" of the Wing On Building, connected to it by a footbridge. The "Seventh Heaven", on the seventh floor of this building was founded in 1937 and was once one of the premier restaurants in Shanghai, catering for the rich and famous.
