Why Chinese people hold their hands behind their back?

I noticed that many older Chinese people hold hands behind their back.
Though I can not explain this particular gesture... Where does it come from? It probably dates back from hundred of year...

This man keeps both hands behind his back.
Many Chinese people do this. It is weird that in France many people from the countryside used to hold their hands the exact same way!

Now it is also interesting to see how this old woman holds one hand in her back while holding her cane in the other! 
Noblemen in France in old time France used to do the same! Many would also wear high heels and use a cane!
