Photographer's Note

Here is the second of the trade forts of Ghana that i am uploading for now.
This one is from the small village of Shama just a little east of Sekundi Takoradi.
It was built as a Dutch lodge in 1526 then made into a Portuguese fort in 1590 and Abandoned in 1600. Restored and altered by the Dutch in 1638, finally Ceded to Britain in 1872.

The picture is a scan, i have repaired scratches, and upon advise from danielswalsh i have used neat image to remove some of the noice.
