Photos of the Real Shanghai

Posted by w_thames_the_d on August 16, 2011

China is old and many of her streets and buildings are old as well. The problem is that the locals feel that these sites and streets are eyesores and are embarrassed to share them with the world. Thus, China has done her best to destroy or hide such places.
These photos show charming sections of Shanghai that frankly embarrass many who live around there. For instance in these places or hutongs in Beijing, the locals feel that those who inhabit them are uncouth and represent the bad of the past.
