Saturday Snaps

This is a photograph I took of a model up in the Liverpool Maritime Museum. You can probably see from the plaque that is behind the model explaining it is a slave ship.

I was staring at it for ages. You might have to zoom in to discern the tiny models of people, including the many Africans on the cramped lower decks who were being traded as commodities.

It was barbaric. It’s hard to understand the inhumane way people can treat others, except as we know, it still happens today.
