Among them, the word French Concession has aroused the discontent of some netizens.
The French Concession is one of the two concessions in Shanghai (the other is the Shanghai Public Concession), mainly located in Luwan District (which has been incorporated into Huangpu) and Xuhui District of Shanghai, while the eastern narrow zone extends into todays Huangpu District. Shanghai French Concession is the earliest, largest and most prosperous of the four French Concessions in modern China.
In its heyday, the French Concession, from the east to Huangpu River, from the north to Fuyu Road (now Yanan Middle Road) and Adoa Road (now Yanan East Road), separated from the British and American public concessions by the Treaty of Nanjing, France signed the Huangpu Treaty with the Qing Government in 1845 (also known as the Five-Port Trade Regulations: Customs and Tax Rules) and won it in 1845. The consulate in Shangwukou, Funing, Guangxia, and enjoy a series of extraterritorial privileges. On April 6, 1849, Shanghai Daotai Lingui and Min Min Mani formally signed an exchange of letters, and the French Concession in Shanghai was established. At that time, the French Concession was only 986 mu.
In 1853, the French envoys in Shanghai and the British and American envoys signed the Land Charter of Shanghai Anglo-American Law together without knowing the Qing government. The charter nominally unified the concessions of the three countries. At the same time, it made clear that the concession countries would directly hand over the rents originally given to the landlords to the Qing government, essentially turning the concession into the ownership of all countries. The ownership of land by the original owners was negated. A year later, the three countries jointly established the Ministry of Industry Bureau. Since then, people in the concession only pay taxes to the Ministry of Industry. The concession has become a country within the country, and the Qing government can only accept this reality.
In 1860, the French Concession expanded for the first time, and its area increased to 124 mu. In 1869, the ministers of the countries concerned in China also approved the Constitution of the Council of France and the Land Constitution of the United Kingdom and the United States, which formally confirmed the independent status of the French Concession.
By 1882, the French Concession had completed its first expansion, and the British and American Concessions north of Pidgin in the Northern Territory had been merged into public concessions. By 1900, the public concessions had completed two expansion, with a total area of more than 30,000 mu (22 square kilometers). In 1912, the French Council voted to ask the French consul to ask the then Beiyang government for the expansion of the French Concession. In 1913, Maurice de Conty, then French envoy to China, formally asked the Beiyang government to recognize the police power of the roads it built across the border. In fact, he forced the Beiyang government to recognize the sovereignty of the French Concession over these roads. This is the first time in the history of the concession. In the past, the expansion of the concession will be carried out by agreement with the government. This time, it has not even done superficial work. At that time, the Yuan Shikai government, fearing the revolutionary partys anti-Yuan activities in the concession, agreed to the unreasonable demands of the French side in exchange for capturing the revolutionary party members in the concession. In September 1914, the French Concession was formally demarcated and expanded to more than 15,000 mu, more than six times the previous area.
From this point of view, cross-border road construction has formally become a means of expanding concessions in a practical sense, and cross-border road construction areas have become quasi-concessions. Encouraged by this, the public concessions carried out large-scale cross-border road construction operations in the next two decades. On the eve of the Japanese invasion of China, the cross-border road construction area of the public concessions reached 47,000 mu, even exceeding the area of the public concessions themselves. It can be said that the beginning of all this is the second expansion of the French Concession.
Secteurdelouest, Secteurcentral and Secteursud were the second expansions of French Concession, which coincided with the First World War and the October Revolution of Russia. A large number of Russian noble giants came to Shanghai and chose to build luxurious public houses in the French Concession. Museum. At the same time, because of the more developed business in the public concession, there have been factories, workersresidential areas and other civilian residential areas. Shikumen houses in the public concession are also more than those in the French concession. Unlike the busy banks, foreign banks and low-cost housing in the public concessions, the French concessions are represented by the cafes, bakeries on Xiafei Road (todays Huaihai Road) and the tall plane trees on both sides of the road. The French Concession, with its beautiful environment, has also attracted British and American businessmen working in the public concession and Chinese wealthy people from Shanghai, Republic of China, to build houses and mansions. The French Concession has gradually become a recognized high-grade residential area on the beach. Today, the former French Concession is still the most Western-style area in Shanghai.
The Wutong French Concession on Huaihai Road reached its peak in the 1930s. Since then, with the Japanese aggression against China, the French Concession has temporarily become an isolated island in Shanghai occupied by Japan. In 1943, it was handed over from the then puppet Vichy French regime to the puppet Wang Jingwei regime and formally withdrew from the historical stage. During its nearly 100 years of existence, the French Concession witnessed the rise and fall of France, as well as the confusion and humiliation in the internal and foreign affairs of the old China. Almost all the expansion of the French Concession was imposed on the Chinese government. The prosperity of the French Concession was also based on the comprador classs betrayal of national interests.
Today, as we linger in the exquisite foreign houses of the French Concession, we should not forget that behind these exquisite buildings is the history of our countrys backwardness and poverty.
