As promised here are the first two panels of Lt. John Frederick Warre’s 1847-1847 view along the Huangpu River.
The first image in the series places the viewer with Shanghai at his back looking down the Huangpu River towards “Woosung” (Wusong is now a district within Shanghai). Warre describes a low arched bridge at the extreme left (he uses the word “brullah” which must be a phonetic spelling because I can’t figure out exactly what he is referring to). He states that the Chinese built most bridges like this one and that they have a single railing. On the left bank of the river are bamboos and “fruit & large umbrageous trees” (“umbrageous” means big trees that provide shade– I learn something new every day!).
