Shanghai as a leading fashion capital is attracting numerous tourists, no matter holiday or regular days, you can see crowded of people in Shanghai any day. But do you know how the 80s Shanghai look like? Today I want share some precious photos of 80s Shanghai with you.
At that time in Shanghai, the city has not yet entered the fast lane, even cars on the road are also moving slow. The high-rise buildings in Lujiazui have not been established opposite of Huangpu River. Like no Oriental Pearl Tower, no World Financial Center, no Shanghai Center, no Jin Mao Tower, no Shangri-La.
Before the 1980s, Shanghai had almost no pedestrian bridge, after the reform and opening up policy, Shanghai began to increase vehicle in traffic on busy urban roads, vehicles mixed scenes frequently appear. In order to ease the pressure of traffic, from the late 1982’s Shanghai started construction of pedestrian bridges, Yan’an Road, Tibet Road overpass was built in 1985, in addition to the bridge, but then also the construction of the Fuzhou Road – Tibet Road, Nanjing Road – Tibet Road, Zhaojiabang – Tianyaoqiaolu four pedestrian bridges.
The square sky bridge overpass East Yan’an Road may be was Shanghai’s first skybridge, and later remodeled several times. After this skybridge is the Dongfeng Hotel, the first KFC in Shanghai opened here.
In 1984, the Huating Road apparel market focus on a lot of foreign trade clothing, it became the birthplace of Shanghai’s fashionable.
Time never stop for anyone, development is good but not too fast. Maybe Shanghai can be like 80s, the speed may slower and the stress of people could be less. Me born and grew up in Shanghai, really hope Shanghai will be better and better, more and more people like it.
