Photographer and longtime That's collaborator Nicky Almasy has put together three photos that capture 'The Evolution of Yongkang Lu' from local market to buzzing bar street. The first from 2007, the second 2009 and the third from 2014.

The Shanghai-based Hungarian has really caught how quickly this city changes in relatively short spaces of time. Expect to see more of his work on our site very soon...
