Midget Apartments on Wukang Road in Shanghai date from 1931. They have been altered since then. The balconies on each side have been enclosed and a new door has been punched through the corner to serve the business located on the ground floor but these decorative panels have survived.
Shanghai Art Deco, by Tess Johnson & Deke Erh.
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 email@example.com if you are interested, and advise if you would like the book to be dedicated and/or signed.
