Signs on cafe window: "Dine at Maxime Cafe and order UB Union Brewery Limited, Shanghai"; "Eat at Maxime Cafe and order UB Union Brewery Limited, Shanghai". 'Blood Alley' (officially named Rue Chu Pao San; now Xikou Lu) was a short road between Rue du Consulat and Avenue Edward VII, just off the Bund. Blood Alley was so called because of the frequent fist fights between foreign sailors and soldiers, especially during periods of international tension. See Ro-n1136 and Ro-n1138.
