Photographer's Note

This area of Shanghai was divided in sectors, one for each country, when China empire was obligated to open its ports to western nations.
This is a colonial building in the French Concession. It is told Mao and his communist friends had a secrete meeting in this building and when they were discovered had to escape to avoid prison. We can see the typical Chinese grey bricks while the carvings have an European touch of art.

Essa área de Xangai foi dividida em setores, um para cada país, quando o império chinês foi obrigado a abrir seus portos às potências ocidentais.
Vemos aqui uma fachada de um prédio do setor francês, dizem que certa vez Mao estava reunido com seus amigos comunistas e tiveram que escapar da polícia às pressas.
Vemos os tijolos cinzentos, típicos da China, e os relevos no portal, tipicamente europeus.
