Shanghai- The Red Villa

Former Pathé Building aka Pathé Villa aka French "La Villa Rouge" and 小红楼 (xiǎo hónglóu) in Chinese. Located in Xujiahui Park. Constructed in 1921 as wood and brick structure, the red bricks gave it the French and Chinese name. This building used to be the Asia-Pacific headquarters of the Pathé recording company, called Pathé Orient, and is therefore regarded as the birthplace and cradle of the Chinese recording industry.


Today the Villa is used as a restaurant - and Pathé is known as EMI. See where this picture was taken.. [?]
