Description: The Shanghai French Concession was a foreign concession in Shanghai , China from 1849 until 1946 . The concession came to an end in practice in 1943 when the Vichy French government signed it over to the pro Japanese puppet government in Nanking . The area covered by the former French Concession was the premier residential and retail districts of Shanghai . Despite rampant redevelopment over the last few decades the area retains a distinct character thanks to its tree shaded boulevards and streets and European architecture .
