自簽訂天津條約後,安平列為通商口岸,海關、外商洋行紛紛進駐設立。英商「德記洋行」設立於同治六年(西元1867年),為當時安平地區的五大洋行之一。隨著日治時期的專賣制度以及安平港逐漸淤塞,貿易功能蕭頹,德記洋行也就日漸沒落而關閉。之後洋行建物經歷不同的使用命運:日治時期成為鹽業株式會社的辦公廳、光復後歸由台鹽台南鹽場所有、1979年洋行建築由市政府購回,企業捐助設立成為「台灣開拓史料蠟像館」。這棟有著兼具防日曬雨淋功能的西式拱廊建築,雪白外牆的雙層拱圈與綠釉花瓶欄杆如今仍留存屹立著。

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
