Old Shanghai

NPR's Mary Kay Magistad reports on efforts to preserve the cultural heritage of the city of Shanghai, as the breakneck pace of development in China has created a demand for the destruction of old buildings and neighborhoods. Preservation efforts include the creation of a photographic record of parts of Shanghai that are targeted for "renewal."
