The first one looks like it's of the Bund in Shanghai. I think the Wirral Multicultural centre in Conway St has a translation service. Might be worth having a word with them. I know lots of Chinese people use the centre.

On the first picture, the writing on the right says "Shanghai Nanjing Road", which is the subject of the embroidery. I can't read the writing on the left as most is written in Simplified Chinese.
