Nanjing Road – From Series of Views of Shanghai (post 1932).
Today, the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco ends its exhibition entitled Shanghai. As part of the profile for the exhibition, one of the Museum's bloggers did a post Nanjing Road, Then and Now, juxtaposing identical views of the city's famous street from the 1930s and from 2009. The clock tower and historical building opposite make up a time capsule around which everything else changed. The 1930s picture was used for the exhibition catalogue.
