Park Hotel View

With the Park Hotel (also called 国际饭店) built by the Solvak architect Ladislav Hudec the Shanghai skyline changed significantly.

The 1934 Park Hotel is called Asia's first skyscraper and a saying followed when the 22-floor building opened: "Hold you hat when you look up."

Now look down ... On the very right used to be Shanghai's horse racing track.

August 2010.
