Originating from humble beginnings as a trading post to evolve into one of the world's biggest cities, Shanghai's development through the last centuries has been multifaceted. We start where merchants congregated in the 15th century, explore edifices in which foreign venturers traded goods in the 1920s, all the way to modern days' cathedrals of commerce on both sides of the Huangpu.
