Notes

University of Bristol - Historical Photographs of China reference number: LP01-55. No caption in the album for this photograph. Probably Shansi (Shanxi) province. This painting of a mythological creature on a wall, might be near a magistrate's Yamen - as the symbolic guardian of the Yamen?  The creature may be seeking to devour the sun (outside the frame of the photograph, to the right). See Ba04-52.
