It's the thing you count with if you were in ancient Chinese times. Now we have calculators & cell phones to do the dirty work! Whew, it's too complicated with fingers.

Architecturally, I have no clue but I recently saw the movie Abacus:  Small Enough To Fail about the hypocrisy related to the recent financial crisis. I highly recommend it.

Not sure how that is an archicteture question. I do know that an Abacus is a mathmatical instrument to do equations. Maybe they were mounted into the wall.

I am sure it does not have anything to do with calculating or adding numbers.  

Looks like someone slabbed it with a Google search.
