Reference: For two similar paintings with a view of the hongs in Canton, please see Carl L. Crossman The Decorative Arts of the China Trade, page 434, numbers 22-23. On the right hand side among the French, American, British and Danish flags, appears a church. The land for that church was purchased in 1847, and it was built shortly thereafter. The factories in Canton were destroyed by fire in 1856, never to be rebuilt in the same way.
