The large building is Coronet Building (皇冠大廈) completed in 1958. It was built upon the place where Luna Park was. From the far end, we can see the chimney of North Point Power Station. Those lower buildings at the right lived many Shanghai settlements at that moment. We still can see the sign of Tchakalian Restaurant (老大昌飯店), a very famous Russian bakery and restaurant opened in Shanghai during 1937.
