He reads his newspaper and waits. Nearby, a grandmother, supported by two young women, leans on a wooden staff topped by a carved dragon’s head. A row of customers leans intently over the polished wood counter. Copper bars separate them from the clerks, but their eyes are fastened on the lightning-fast abacus calculations of their accounts. Welcome to 1930’s Shenyang China.
     Abruptly, one of the young women steps away from the old lady and smiles as she examines her cell phone. The “grandmother” and “sister” do not react. Neither do the tellers, nor their customers. They can’t because they are all made of wax and this bank lobby is the Shenyang Financial Museum’s welcoming exhibit..."

Best wishes,
