Gangsters and Their Playgrounds (NEW)


Event Details


As Shanghai developed into an Asian metropolis, the opportunities to “get rich” flourished; underground businesses, along with legal trade, thrived. Opium dens, prostitution, and gambling could be found everywhere. Gangs and gangster bosses reigned over the underworld. As Carolin Billetter leads us on a walk through the Former French Concession, we will learn about the places where some of these gangsters of Shanghai lived, worked, and played.
