Notes on the Geography of Ghana: Cape Coast: Photo 1

world pictures Ghana: Cape Coast

The British set about rebuilding the Swedish/Danish/Dutch fort, but the French came a century later and so damaged the fort in 1757 that it had to be rebuilt again. That took place in the 1760s and '70s. The fort's three slave dungeons remained in use for three or four decades, until the British abolished their slave trade in 1807. Quick calculation: the fort had gone about its grim trade for about 150 years. It was restored in the 1920s by the Gold Coast Public Works Department and again in the 1990s, this time with help from the United Nations Development Program and the United States Agency for International Development.
