About this work

Lettering

Productive free labour in Sierra Leone. Driving the black male at Freetown. The carriage in the foreground was built for a resident of Sierra Leone by Messrs. Coates and Blizard Coachmakers of London in June 1828. It was intended to be drawn, in the manner here delineated, by twenty four negroes of course free men, and as it is ascertained that such conveyances are the most common at Freetown, one or two additional ones were introduced to complete the scene.
