The “Impressive Suhe Creek: A Financial Sub-Center” research project is themed as “Past, Now, Future”. Its targets are the financial warehouses along Suhe Creek. The project aims to tell stories about the buildings, people and operation activities happening in those warehouses, and sort out a relatively complete historical process through deeply studying fragmentary historical data including related real estate files, household registration files, files of Shanghai Municipal Archives and press data. It is expected that deep studies in the history and culture of Suhe Creek can help spell out the stories of Suhe Creek. Meanwhile, academic research may contribute to the functional positioning of Suhe Creek and the overall regional development.
