"Shanghai" brand sedans, Shanghai, 1983

In 1983, my "primary" interest for photographs was public transport: trams, metros, trolleybuses and also railways. I also enjoyed photographing people, which was very interesting in China.

I was also interested in photographing Chinese-made automobiles, but this was not so easy.

I had to wait until I found a scene like this one, with autos clean and in good condition, without anything "in the way," and with good light.

One might think that a scene like this one would be "easy" to find, but that was not true back in 1983.

(I described the vehicle at right as a "new" Shanghai sedan. "Old" and "new" were perhaps not the best labels, but they were convenient.)

1983 October 8.
