On the question of space, many studies have invoked “Shanghai” as a place where events occurred. Lately, a growing amount of information has become available concerning the infrastructural changes that transformed the physical city, such as the addition of tramways, street lights, electricity, paved roads, and so forth. The “spectacular” nature of Shanghai derived ultimately from the presence of the Europeans, who built the city and created the space in which women found their new place. The authorities of the International Settlement, through the adoption of municipal codes, did much to regulate civilian conduct on the street and at public places.

Keywords:   Shanghai, Europeans, International Settlement, civilian conduct, infrastructural changes
