Shanghai Bund 上海滩

On the left is the Asiatic Building built in 1916; the white building behind the Observation Tower is the Shanghai Club, built in 1910. The building with the turret is the Union Insurance building, built in 1922. The Observation or Signal Tower was originally build in 1884 and replaced in 1907 with the present structure. It was moved from the north end of the Bund in 1993 during reconstruction of the retaining walls and Zhongshan Road.
