Description:

Shen Bao (申報), also known as Shun Bao, is the most influential and
longest lasting commercial newspaper of pre-1949 China. It was
established by British businessman Ernest Major in 1872 and lasted
until 1949 when the Chinese Communist Government shut it down. As an
important primary source for late imperial and modern China, Shen Bao
underwent three reigns of Qing Dynasty, and witnessed many significant
historical events, such as Sino-French War, Sino-Japanese War, Boxer
Rebellion, and two World Wars. Known for its rich news reporting,
commentary and advertisement, Shen Bao played a pivotal role in the
formation of public opinion in the late 19th century and Republic Era.
