This 1969 photograph shows a set of window panels, decorated with bas-relief carvings of Chinese figurative scenes, flowers in vases. It is also inscribed with a pair of Chinese couplets that portend prosperous and joyous days. The panels are seen at the Wee family residence, descendants of 19th century shopping tycoon Wee Bin, which has since been converted into the Tan Cheng Lock Baba House Museum. Title devised by Library staff.
