Banks and Bubbles; How History Repeats Itself.

Child passing money to man blowing bubble, possibly at bank teller window, next to sign:
"Blowupp & burstt bankers and breakers.
Pass in your 'soaps' and see it grow!!"
"Bonds," "stocks," "security," "bank notes," and "deeds" on papers on "soap" dish.
