Not sure if these women were discussing the man's open-air display of Buddhist objects or the content of the banners hanging in the alleyway off 陕西南路 South Shaanxi Road in the French Concession - or maybe just the tourist indiscreetly taking their picture! Back home in 江湾镇 Zhangwan Town I've painstakingly transcribed and dictionaried the characters on these banners (kind of a fun way to work on my Chinese!), along with those of the building to their right: apparently construction on the subway station elevator below has led to reverberating noise, cracking of walls and tilting of floors, all without consulation or compensation.
