One Giant Neckties of Shanghai

Posted: July 20th, 2021 | No Comments »

One Giant Pure Silk Neckties ‘Made in Shanghai’ and from all good department stores (and old Shanghai had some good department stores back then). Their sales office was on Chunking Road (Chongqing North Road now) near the race course; not sure where their factory was (possibly there, but unlikely i feel). This ad from JB Powell’s China WEekly Review in 1947. Sadly it is a business that seems not to have survived the 1949 takeover or moved elsehwere. After 1949 i guess pure silk ties were rather frowned on!
