Not exactly outtakes, these images are scenes from the French Concession in Shanghai (and in More of China (2) ) the small town (10 million population) of Suzhou (pronounced soo-jo) about an hours drive from Shanghai.
The famed French Concession in Shanghai, established by treaty in 1849 as a French settlement, and ending in 1943 during WWII, was and is primarily a premier residential and retail area. Despite re-development over the last few decades, the area retains a distinct character, and is a popular tourist destination. The area's trademarked tree-lined boulevards of Sycamore trees draw both locals and tourists to its shaded walkways where there are bistros and chic shops for all to enjoy.
