A detailed plan of Shanghai in the 1930s

FUSAZO¯ SUGIE.

[Shanhai shinchizu] The New Map of Shanghai.
Shanghai: Fusazo¯ Sugie, c.1937. Colour lithograph, sheet 535 x 770mm.

Laid on canvas.

A plan of Shanghai, titled in Japanese and English, with a large photographic prospect of the Bund (the waterfrond of the English Quarter), small inset plans of Nanjing, Hanzhou and Suzhou, and a larger inset of the Nationlist government's plan to relocated the financial centre to a planned development north east of the city.
The plan was published about the time of the Japanese invasion of Shanghai, during the Second Sino-Japanese War. Despite the occupation the three regions of the Shanghai International Settlement are marked: pink for the British Quarter and orange for the American (united as the 'Shanghai International Settlement' from 1863), and yellow for the French. After Pearl Harbour in 1941 the only concession allowed to continue was that of the Vichy French.
Fusazo¯ Sugie (fl. c. 1910-50), was a Japanese who owned the Nihon-do Japanese Bookstore in Shanghai from the early 1930s.
