Self description: "'Shanghai in Images' is the fruit of a collaboration
between the Institute of East Asian Studies (Lyon 2 University - Lyon 3
University  CNRS), the Center for Chinese Studies (University of
California, Berkley) and ECAI (Electronic Cultural Atlas Initiative). This
database has as its vocation to put forward a history of this great Chinese

Project and contains 1213 images (May 2002). The images contain basic
metadata (often including a short description) and are searchable according
to the following criteria: title/subject; keywords - general; date;
estimated periods; location; action; caption on print; caption on support;
support; author; nature; repository; published; keywords - street name;
misc. information. Combined search is possible, as is access via different
albums (river; street; school; church; building).
