Shanghai Street Stories

August 11, 2015 2015年8月11日

Shanghai Street Stories is the blog of the formerly Shanghai-based Singaporean photographer Sue Ann Tay. The blog focuses on heritage architecture, communal living, and the local sites and sounds of old Shanghai. 


Full of beautiful photography combined with intimate anecdotes and interviews, Shanghai Street Stories delves beyond the glossy futuristic metropolis to show a rapidly disappearing old world in Shanghai’s old lilongs and alley neighborhoods.


From posts about Shikumen architecture and the influence of art deco, to historical Japanese comfort houses in the Hongkou district, the blog mixes photojournalism with fascinating academic references and historical photographs.
