The medium-rise buildings were side by side of a wide street called Pansodan street where I walked. Most of these buildings were used by governments and others. Looking closer, one of the buildings in this photo seemed to belong to the Myanmar Agricultural Development Bank. The name of the owner was written above the entrance.
According to my sources, this building was built in the 1930s. And it owned by the National Bank of India at the time of construction. It is strange now, Myanmar consisted of a part of the British Raj at that time. I thought the cultures were different between India and Myanmar. They got lumped together by the British. Therefore, this grand building belonged to the National Bank of India.
Because it was Sunday, few pedestrians walked the street. A street vendor did business under a colorful parasol on the sidewalk. Yet the street vendor seemed to have nothing to do because of the slack. The tranquil atmosphere wafted the street.
