A series of European style buildings rise maginificently along the Bund's promenade. Shadows haunt their architecture, suggesting darker pasts. Each of these buildings has a triumphant red flag flying atop. To me, it is a petulant gesture of ownership. Here it simultaneously detracts from and reinforces the somewhat stark nature of this building's imperial elegance.
