Paul French reports at his weblog about the Shanghai sledgehammers threatening the Old Love Lane, now Wujiang Lu, up for “redevelopment”.

People voting with their wallets for tasty local food rather than western fast food. But the builders are encroaching – already some of the old houses have been destroyed and a couple of non-descript blocks of nonsense put in their place.

More at his weblog.
