The Summer Palace Restaurant, Shanghai, 1947

Posted: July 13th, 2021 | No Comments »

The Summer Palace ‘Pekinese’ style restaurant was, i believe, very popular with Shanghailanders and advertised in English at them quite consistently – it was quite close to a number of key Shanghailander and sojourner locations including the American YMCA. In 1947 the restaurant was on Yu Ya Ching Road, renamed Sitzang Road and now Xizang Road (just in the International Settlement side).
