Geospatial data on transportation in pre-1949 Shanghai (GIS)

I have just uploaded the full dataset of shape files on transportation in Shanghai before 1949. This includes tramway (1903, 1908, 1936, 1947), autobus (1936, 1947), and trolleybus (1936, 1947), with their respective stations. The dataset includes both individual shape files for each line in each type of network and for the stations.
