Yokohama Specie Bank - Shanghai

Yokohama Specie Bank Building No 24 The Bund Shanghai

Yokohama Specie Bank Building No 24 The Bund Shanghai is a seven-story building in The Bund, Shanghai. It is now a branch of the Shanghai Textile Holding Corporation.

The building was designed by architects at P & T Architects & Engineers Ltd. The building was built on the site of David Sassoon’s 1845 building. The Japanese bank purchased the site in 1920, began construction of the current building in 1923, and completed construction in 1924. After World War II the Chinese government confiscated the bank’s assets, and the building became the headquarters of the Shanghai Textile Industry Bureau.
