At 1843 Middle Huaihai Road in Xuhui District, the former residence of Soong Chingling is a boat-shaped building in German style with red roof and white walls. It had originally been the private villa of a German ship owner named Bauer and Jiang Weiguo once lived here. It was the living place of Madam Soong Chingling in Shanghai from 1948 to 1981. The residence is kept in the original look with a portrait of Sun Yat-sen hangs on the north wall and the photo taken with Mao Zedong on the south wall in the living room where she met some state leaders as well as some heads of foreign countries. It is a secluded and peaceful residence embraced with a lawn in front and camphor trees around.
