The changing face of Shanghai

They say that Shanghai is one of the fastest growing cities in the world, judge for yourself. The most recent photograph was taken by Reuters photographer Carlos Barria who took the shot from the same perspective and framing of a similar photograph taken 26 years ago. The photo is taken looking East into Pudong ( translated as River East) from Puxi , the part of Shanghai we live in ( River West ). What it doesn’t show is just how far back the development has spread from the waterfront...it goes on for miles and miles.
