The Shing Hwang Gasl Lamp and Mantles Factory, Shanghai

Posted: July 9th, 2021 | No Comments »

Shing Hwang was a manufacturer of gas lamps and mantles in Shanghai ( i think a version of them still exists in Taiwan). This ad is from 1947 and so Shing Hwang ran their address as the old Rue Amiral Bayle in the French Concession, but the road names were changed and the Concession gone in 1943 and so Hwangpi Road South was also listed (now of course Huangpi Lu). Nice tilley lamps too if anyone’s got one??
