The ‘Historic Figures Walk’ is a series of Information Panels located in the same road that Rewi used to live. The panels feature many well-known writers and other important people who lived in this district [Changning].  Rewi Alley is the only non-Chinese.  His panel is located second on the left side.  It is in Chinese and features a photo of Rewi and also one of the entrance to his Shanghai flat (at Building 4, 1315 Yuyuan Road).
