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).
This article is based on a report by Jane Furkert of her work: ‘An Independent Travellers’ Guide to Rewi Alley Locations in China, 2016’, that was funded by the Rewi Alley Friendship and Exchange (RAFE) Fund.
