The Old City was known then as the Chinese City, to differentiate it from the concessions of various European powers which had been established throughout Shanghai. Shanghai was originally built as a walled city, but by the time this map was made it was connected to the rest of the urban area through numerous bridges. The key at the bottom gives the location of important buildings. Some, such as the City God Temple (Temple du défenseur de la Ville), remain today.
