A resident visits the Shanghai home of China's former leader Mao Zedong, which reopens to the public on Tuesday after a two-year renovation. This two-story house on 120 Maoming Road North is part of a shikumen (stone gate) community called Jiaxiuli built in 1915. It was where Mao spent time with his family in 1924. The facade was restored based on historical architecture archives, while the interior layout was upgraded. New exhibits including copies of Mao's handwritten correspondence are exhibited in the former residence for the first time on the Chinese mainland. Photo: Yang Hui/GT
