Wonderful vintage black and white illustration of a Chinese house. The text said this drawing represents a simple home owned by a tea merchant in the late 1800s. Notice the traditional tiled roof. A pair of trees frame a paved walkway leading up to the grand entranceway.
Our Parlour Panarama proved to be a great find. George Cupples and his publisher T. Nelson and Sons used a number of great illustrations in this 1882 release.
