The Growth of Shanghai



These two picture of the Bund in Shanghai show the growth of that part of the city in justĀ  the last twenty years. Yes, although it may remind you of an early 20th-century photograph, the top picture was taken in 1990. The bottom picture was taken in 2010. According to a comment from a Shanghai redditor, this is an accurate depiction of the tremendous construction since then. Link

this is a cool map comparing states to countries via GDP and population, just something to ponder when thinking about the US vs the World in terms of wealth.

Sorry, but that bottom picture wasn't taken in 2010. These images were part of a chain email that made the rounds years ago.

Remarkable nonetheless.
