Travel to China: Shanghai:The Bund: Photo 9
Also part of the Everbright Bank, this adjoining building on the Bund, from 1922, is another part of the bank. Originally, it rented offices but also housed on the ground floor the local office (and up top a residential apartment for the general manager) of the Glen Line, which at one time ran 80 ships. The business began with the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869 and ended as an independent line in 1911 when Glen became part of Elder Dempster and, in 1935, part of Blue Funnel. Its last ship was sold in 1978. The American government rented space, first for the Navy, then the American consulate, until 1949.
