    The original drawing was completed in 1922 a time when the financial crisis was resonating all around the world, Denmark, Greece, and Germany were all suffering, the Great War had finished and now it was time to pay the bills. The image shows queuing people outside the bank panicked in the closure, a man to the left reading the newspaper, no doubt the source of all the fear. Crowds gather across the street to watch the sideshow of earnest savers worrying if they've lost everything.
