The Art Deco Department Stores of Shanghai. The Chinese Australian Connection.

Edgecliff. Impact Press. 2017. Stock ID #157275

Colour and black and white illustrations, 65pp, paperback, 20 x 12.5cm. Shanghai's Nanjing Road is internationally famous for its iconic art deco department stores. These stores are not just about shopping. They are not just about selling modern goods from around the world. They are about entertainment and they are about pleasure!

But if you were to ask who established these stores, there would be very few people who would know the answer. Even fewer would know the names of the Chinese-Australian merchants who were key-players. It is no exaggeration to say that the department stores of China and Hong Kong were built on the back of Sydney's Haymarket banana trade. (When referring to this item please quote stockid 157275).
