Notes on the Geography of China: Shanghai:The Bund: Photo 9
This adjoining building on the Bund, from 1922, is another part of the Everbright Bank. Originally, it contained the Shanghai office of the Glen Line, which ran 80 ships; it also had the general manager's apartment. The Glen line had begun with the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869, and it ended as an independent line in 1911 when Glen became part of Elder Dempster, which in 1935 became part of Blue Funnel. The company's last ship was sold in 1978. Until 1949, the American government rented space in the building, first for the Navy, then the American consulate.
