This special event featured a much-anticipated return of the Qianlong-era Pictures of Tilling and Weaving (Geng zhi tu 耕織圖) that are currently in the Huaihai Tang 懷海堂 Collection of Hong Kong. Through the generosity of their owner, rare imperial rubbings of the Pictures of Tilling and Weaving were displayed for viewing after a lecture by Dr. Roslyn Hammers of the University of Hong Kong.
OCS members were guided through the HSBC Archives and Repository with Thomas Warren and Florence Lo. Attendees were shown the inner workings of the archives and viewed pieces from the collection including works by George Chinnery.
