Lion Statues of HSBC

When HSBC decided to build its third Headquarters at 1 Queen's Road Central, opened in 1935, it commissioned two bronze lions from Shanghai-based British sculptor W W Wagstaff. This commission was inspired by two earlier lions that had been ordered for the new Shanghai office opened in 1923. Cast by J W Singer & Sons in the English town of Frome, to a design by Henry Poole RA, these lions had quickly become part of the Shanghai scene. They became known as Stephen and Stitt: Stephen was named for A G Stephen, formerly Manager Shanghai, and in 1923 the Chief Manager of HSBC, and G H Stitt, the then Manager Shanghai. Stephen is depicted roaring; Stitt quiescent, and again insiders said that this represented the characters of these two famous bankers.
当位于皇后大道中1号第三代香港汇丰总行大厦于1935年落成时,汇丰银行委托上海的英国雕塑家瓦格斯塔夫制作两只铜狮,仿照1923年上海汇丰银行大楼门前一对铜狮复制铸造了两尊同样的狮子,安放于香港总行门前。上海的两座铜狮由亨利.普尔设计,弗洛姆镇上的J.W.斯涅父子浇筑,这两座铜狮子很快就成为上海的一景。置放在总行门前的这两头雄狮,张嘴吼叫的是“史提芬”(Stephen),此名得自1920-24年的香港总行总司理史提芬(A.G. Stephen),而铸造铜狮也来自他的倡议。另一头铜狮称为“施迪”(Stitt)代表安静,是当时上海分行经理施迪(G. H. Stitt)的名字。据当时银行内部的工作人员说,这两个不同形态的狮子也反映了当时两位著名银行家的性格。
