Night Walk in Shanghai – 1933 Old Millfun
1933 is a complex of restaurants and shops in Hongkou District of Shanghai. The poured-concrete structures once housed the Shanghai Municipal Council Slaughterhouse, the largest slaughterhouse in Shanghai at the time.
The five buildings were built in 1933 during the Republic of China period. Property managers say that they comprise 32,500 square meters, described by the Atlas Obscura travel guide as “an eerie Gotham-Deco achievement in concrete, glass, and steel, and the last remaining of its design in the world.” Curved staircases, bridged walkways, and thick walls give the complex a unique industrial aura, especially for an area aspiring to house cuisine and the arts.
The old factory building in #1933 was the largest slaughterhouse in the Far East in the last century. This time I went to the old factory building in 1933 to see if there was a light show. The light show ended early. It’s good, I just look around the streets, because here is still the buildings of the last century, walk around, you can still see the scene of old Shanghai decades ago.
