Nostalgic trip charting 40 years of change

Shine photographers take a closer look at the evolution of the city in the past four decades.

China embarked on a policy of economic reform and opening up to the outside world 40 years ago, ushering in a dramatic new era of change that touched every aspect of our life. To mark the 40th anniversary, Shanghai Daily photographers have taken a closer look at the evolution of the city in the past four decades. Special thanks to the photography magazine Shanghai Pictorial, which contributed the photos from the 1980s and 1990s.
