Shanghai Doumer Apartments

The Doumer Apartments on Route Doumer (now Donghu Lu). Designed in 1941 by Alexandre Kooklin and financed by Shlema Shimonovitch Moshinsky and his son Abe, the owners of the Shanghai Card Board Box Factory. Among others the factory produced packaging for the famous Hazelwood ice cream. Shlema's grandson Sam Moshinksy - a true Shanghailander - was born in 1934 and documented his childhood and youth growing up in old Shanghai in the book "Goodbye Shanghai"
