Arch Bridge is a symbol of the prosperous town in the North of Hangzhou. It became an important figure in modernization in Hangzhou from 1895 to 1945. Residents that live in Arch Bridge have a rich cultural life. For example, the temples, theatres, cinemas, newspapers and domesticated animals have greatly enriched their lives. During the Republic of China, the development of the Gongyu Bridge changed a little. In terms of architecture, the house has changed from a traditional Chinese house, to a rich and varied “World Architecture Exhibition.” On the commercial side, due to geographical disadvantages and a malformation of the bridge, the Japanese eventually gave up on their development and the business entered a state of decline.
