  • 《Fort Adelaide ( La Citadelle)》
.
.
.
The fort was originally built in order to protect the port from a possible invasion but also to tame any eventual revolt of the local population, following the racial tensions of the time. Finished in 1840, the fort was never used for military or police purposes because tensions had already faded. The Citadel of Port Louis remains nevertheless one of the rare witnesses of the period of transition between the abolition of the slavery and the arrival of the engaged workers. •Named in honor of Adelaide, the wife of the King of England William IV, whose initials and crown are carved in the stone of the entrance pediment.
Unlike Fort William and Fort Victoria (forts built during the British period), the Citadel has not fallen into oblivion and decrepitude; it is the only one still intact.
Built of basaltic stones, the fort was designed by Colonel Thomas Cunningham and bears witness to the craftsmanship of the time.
Its construction began in 1834-1835 and it was not an easy task; Maurice then passed the course of the abolition of slavery, ending up with a shortage of important labor.

  • This is an 1812 copy of Edward Nares’ Thinks-I-To-Myself published by Bradford & Read of Philadelphia during the same year. What is funny is that this old book was sitting on top of the John Dickenson ‘Letters From A Farmer’ when I picked it up. Because the Dickenson book had no cover and the two were placed perfectly they appeared as one book with no price. I had no idea at the time and the dealer didn’t either, so I may have escaped with quite a deal because we had both thought it was just one obscure book when in reality it was two books, one of which is quite historical and significantly older. #antiques #history #oldbooks #1800s #19thcentury #literature #1812

  • It's nearly six o'clock and it's still bright and sunny which lures me to ignore dinner and switch things up around here.
