A bicycle propped up against the wall in Shanghai's Old Town
New buildings are erected in the background while life goes on - for now -
in the old town in its shadow.
A notice pinned to the door and the character on the wall denote that the building is marked for demolition.
A cyclist rides down the road marking the beginning of new construction.
Residents protest against the upcoming demolition of their homes. Most are well compensated or even welcome a move to more modern accommodation, but still do not want to be relocated from their homes and communities.
