In 1938, the Texaco Group hired architect Arne Jacobsen to design a new type of tank and service stations. Already before, Texaco had built an American standard model, designed by architect Dorwin Teaque. The gas station was never put into mass production, which was otherwise the original plan. So there was never more than this one listed. The building on the coastal road is part of the plan that Arne Jacobsen made for the area at Bellevue Strandpark. It was built in 1939 in a functional style and was called "the mushroom 🍄 " - due to it’s iconic elliptical roof construction. The same design was later used as inspiration for Arne Jacobsen's classic chair Myren from 1952, which has a backrest in the same shape. The building is unchanged since its construction and is in full operation. The only thing that has changed is the red Texaco stands. The building, which is considered to be one of Arne Jacobsen's functionalist masterpieces, is today protected.
The Old Xinhua Daily Building a historic place in the history of Chengdu is falling apart. In April 1938, the Chengdu Xinhua Daily, a newspaper issued by the Communist Party of China in the Kuomintang District, was opened here (also known as the Northwest Sichuan General Distribution Office or the Chengdu Branch). It was finally retired in March 1947. It was visited by the leaders of CPC such as Zhou Enlal, Dong Biwu, Peng Dehual, Lin Boqu, Wu Yuzhang and Deng Yingchao.
