Here’san interesting cover from a 1930s guide to Hangchow (Hangzhou) issued by the Lakeview Hotel. Some very good design work redolent of the decade. There is still a Lakeview Hotel in Hangzhou but it appears to be a modern building and I’m not even sure if it’s actually on the site of the old hotel though it does give a view over the famous West Lake. I’m afraid I don’t have a picture of what the hotel looked like in the 1930s. Still, I’ll post a few old Hangchow pics of my Tumblr site.
