Introduction of scenic spots

Xujiahuiyuan Scenic Spot is located in Xujiahui, Shanghai Metropolitan Tourism Center Circle, east to Wanping Road, south to Puhuitang Road, West to Wending Road and north to Guangyuan West Road. It covers an area of about 2.4 square kilometers. It mainly consists of three parts: historical landscape, fashionable and dynamic shopping and green leisure and entertainment.

The Old Site of Xuhui Public School

Xuhui Public School was founded by Catholic missionary Nanglu in 1850 in Qingdaoguang. It was called the Duke of St. Ina in its early days because it was founded under the patronage of St. Ina Loyola.

Because it is located in Xujiahui, it is also called Xujiahui Public School, or Xuhui Public School for short. It is one of the earliest church schools founded by Catholicism in China.

In 1932, it was renamed Shanghai Private Xuhui Middle School, still sponsored by the Catholic Church; in 1953, it was renamed Shanghai Xuhui Middle School.

The Old Site of Notre Dame

Notre Dame was founded by Jesuit missionary Xue Kong-zhao in Qingpu Hengtang in the 23rd year of Qingdaoguang (1843).

Tongzhi three years (1864) moved to Wangjiatang near Xujiahui. During the seven years of Tongzhi (1868), the Society for the Rescue of the Dead and the Church of Dedication successively established a monastery near the hospitalization of Xujiahui Jesuit, the general name of which was Notre Dame Xujiahui.

The original site is magnificent, and the building was built in 1926. It is the only main part of Notre Dame College of Xujiahui. The building is European style, five-storey reinforced concrete structure. At the end of last century, after the nuns moved to the Tang Tomb Bridge Heavenly Cathedral in Pudong, the building was rented and used by Shanghai Old Station Restaurant. Two train carriages were collected. One was made by German Hanover Vehicle Factory in 1899, and the other was made by Russian Yekaterin Vehicle Factory in 1919.

The Old Site of Baidai Company

No. 811 Hengshan Road is called Baidai Building. Founded in the decade of the Republic of China (1921), it is a three-storey small red building hidden in the green bushes. This is the site of Oriental Baidai Records Company and the birthplace of Chinese records.

Xiao Hong Lou, situated in the South and north, is a three-storey brick-concrete structure. Delicate red flat tiles steep slope roof, all sides of the roof are open with "tiger windows", crimson wood frame exposed, the facade is mainly red brick water wall, white paint between, appear light and agile.

There are balconies on the second floor, open corridors on the bottom, Ioni double columns, white concrete vase railings and ivy stone vases. Mediterranean doors and windows are painted black, narrow and deep, showing the typical French architectural style. There is a cool courtyard in the back of the building, surrounded by tianzhu. A Metasequoia tree in the courtyard looks green and tall, which makes the small building more delicate and lovely in the green shade.

This bright-looking small building has the same distinguished family background. More than eighty years ago, Baidai bought the land and built small buildings on it. From then on, music began to flow here. Soon after, Chinese record labels were born here. The beauty and noble temperament of Baidai small building not only come from its appearance, but also from its historical accumulation.

When the small building was first built, it was cement exterior wall, so the whole building was grey rather than red. The inner passage is about two meters wide, turning up from left to right.

The first floor is the living room for recording and entertaining singers, the second floor is the office for editors, and the third floor is the living room for the owners of Baidai Company. At that time, the reverberation effect of Baidai's studio in Xiaolou was the best in China. It not only uses special double-wall sound insulation, but also sets movable wall surface to adjust reverberation effect according to the change of wall surface, forming different reverberation.

These conditions have attracted many musicians. In the 1930s and 1940s, the name of the small building was often associated with a large number of celebrities in maritime music, such as Zhou Xuan, Li Jinhui, Li Jinguang, Gong Qiuxia, Yao Li, Chen Gexin and Nie Er.

With the change of time, the old "music holy place" hundred generations of small buildings have been used for other purposes. But every Saturday afternoon, in front of the small building, the melody flies and the notes flutter.
