Can anyone help me understand the text on these signs? especielly if there is a year, a name or a location on one of them. It is challenging if you like a challenge :-)

This picture is from a painting of Tingqua's studio, an artist from Canton. The pictures sould be from somewhen around 1850 plus minus.

Here is one version of the full image:

I am writing an article about these pictures, in connection to the art produced in Canton - a hybrid of Chinese and Western art.

Thank you so much for your interest,
