Congratulations on your sale!

South Shields, Ty - United Kingdom

A beautiful location for a sad slice of life! Escape was impossible for those poor souls who toiled in the baking heat. I understand that in some plantations - though not necessarily al - the slaves even had a form of gag made of metal and placed inside their mouths to prevent them from eating the sugar cane. How evil is this! There was truly no escape for them, as the Ocean is an insurmountable barrier except in dreams. The fact that these structures were made of wood and not of brick shows that they would have offered only minimal protection against the elements and sanitation would have been very primitive. Good that they have been preserved as a reminder of the past. History is a stern schoolmaster!
