Inside of the Silk-reeling Plant. We can see that windows were equiped with curtains.

As the re-reeling frames have a rectangular shape, we can guess the raw silk which is reeled on it is 2nd rank raw silk or lower. It turns out that 1st rank raw silk and 2nd rank raw silk were re-reeled separately.
