This is one of the iconic images of Shanghai. Well I think so anyway but perhaps because it features a deco building I just noticed it everywhere. Then again there were squillions of people taking the same view.
It shows the Waibaidu Bridge stretching across the Suzhou Creek with Broadway Mansions (Palmer & Turner, 1930) in the background.
MELBOURNE ART DECO
In 2009 Robin Grow published a book on Melbourne Art Deco, with images largely supplied by David Thompson. The book quickly sold out and he is pleased to say that it has now been re-published by Brolga Press, with updates, errors corrected and a new cover.
Best of all, it is selling for about $25 in the shops and on-line. Art Deco & Modernism Society members can purchase a copy from me for $22, (includes postage within Australia). For overseas orders please email for postage rates. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, and advise if you would like the book to be dedicated and/or signed.
