Manual Catalogues - Bell's List of Illustrations entry: "[No. of chapter] XXXII [Subject of Chapter] The Religion [Subject of Illustration] Q160 (ba). The Assembly Hall in the "Sera Che" College at Sera. [Remarks] L.175"
Other Information - Related Images: Bell does not distinguish in his List of Illustrations between 1998.286.175.1 & 1998.286.175.2 and both may be referenced by his caption for Q.160. The differences in these images are very difficult to distinguish by casual observation but both of the negatives appear to be originals, not copy negatives [MS 11/8/2004]
