Shanghai, Băoshān lù (宝山路), 1983
I have attempted to identify the locations of 1983 street scenes in Shanghai using a 1983 street map, sketches of the trolleybus overhead system that I made ... and a magnifier, so that I can see the trolleybus line number. This identification is sometimes "easy," sometimes "difficult."
The trolleybus in the photo is working Line 18. I believe that the direction of travel is southward.
The location appears to be in 宝山路, Băoshān lù, just north of 上海北站, Shànghăi bĕizhàn (Shanghai North Station).
(I returned from a "side trip" to Nanjing on the morning of October 4 - then took another "side trip," to Suzhou. I returned to Shanghai during the afternoon of October 4.)
1983 October 4.
