Edmund Hiram Fogg (1812-1860) was one of the first Americans to trade in Shanghai; he founded Hiram Fogg & Co., general merchants and auctioneers, in 1848. The building shown here completed in 1859, at the western end of the Bund near the French settlement; in the same year, Fogg returned to the United States, where he died shortly afterwards.
