FIVEONE Car Hire in 1930s Shanghai…

Posted: July 21st, 2019 | No Comments »

FIVEONE Car Hire was up on Pingliang Road (Pingliang Lu)in Y’Poo (Yangpu) out to the north-east. Sensible place if you got a bunch of cars need to be parked up, i guess. FIVEONE obviously chimed with their phone number. Pingliang Road was always an interesting mix of people – FIVEONE plus a lot of workers’ accommodation (a cluster of narrow lanes, which were still there five or six years ago but looked like maybe it might go) for Shanghai No.10 Cotton Mill workers and staff residences for the Shanghai 1st Knitting Factory and the Shanghai Worsted Mill, some godowns for China Tobacco and some army barracks for the Chinese 7th Battalion. It was the edge of the Settlement but a busy area.
