Night Market, Old Town

Scenes like this nighttime, al fresco kitchen are disappearing in Shanghai but can still be found on a number of streets in Nanshi, the Old Town of dense, low-rise buildings and lively alleys that is under threat from the march of the skyscrapers.  Even at 3 a.m., as this photo shows, these quick and dirty stir-fry joints do a brisk trade.
