Former Residence of Sun Yatsen
Sun Yatsen, father of the Chinese republic, lived
in this 2 story house in the French Concession from 1919-1924. His
wife Song Qingling continued to live here after Sunís death until
1937. All the furnishings were arranged by Song Qingling the way
she remembered and most of the objects are original.
It was here, in the summer of 1922 onwards that
Dr. Sun Yatsen met with Li Dazhao, Lin Boqu and other representatives
of the Chinese Communist Party to discuss Kuomintang-Communist cooperation
that led to the first alliance between the 2 parties.
