Above was in the new wing.

In the old wing, in between the stalls, the pictures of 19th Century Chinese maidens were being featured:

During the time before the cameras were being widely used, models would pose and then their pictures would be painted. This will be placed in advertorials and billboards.

This reminds me of my grandaunt, born before year 1900- who was always relunctant to throw away anything. She used to have steel boxes, and other packaging featuring lots of portraits of these maidens.
