Photographer's Note

Nanjing Road goes from Bund area to People's Square, it is named the Fifty Avenue of Shanghai. It had many giant department stores during the 30's, each one of these buildings were restored and are amazing. During the war one of these stores were hit by a plane and hundreds of people died, it is nice to heard about history and competition between these department stores, one of them was the first one to contract women in China, nobody wanted the job because it was a "shame" for a Chinese woman to work outside, then the wife of the owner and his sisters became to work and how they were rich soon other women appeared to work, breaking the prejudice.
Here we can see a simple slice of the street. I crossed this area twice and it was ever nice to do it.
..................

A Nanjing Road uma rua que sai da regi緌 do Bund e alcan蓷 a Pra蓷 do Povo, ela chamada de a Quinta Avenida de Xangai. Essa rua tinha muitas lojas de departamentos nos anos 30 e cada um desses pr嶮ios foi restaurado e impressionam pela beleza.
Durante a guerra um avi緌 caiu numa das lojas e matou centenas de pessoas. bacana saber mais sobre a hist鏎ia dessas lojas e sobre a competi誽o entre elas. Uma delas foi a primeira a contratar mulheres para o trabalho em toda a China, na 廧oca o fato de uma mulher chinesa trabalhar fora de casa era vergonhoso e nenhuma apareceu para trabalhar, ent緌 o dono colocou a mulher e suas irm綼 para trabalhar na loja e as outras mulheres ao verem que as milion嫫ias estavam trabalhando, se candidataram ao trabalho, quebrando o preconceito.
Temos aqui uma pequena fatia das fachadas da rua, passei por essa 嫫ea duas vezes e era sempre uma maravilha apreciar a beleza do lugar.
