Christiansborg Castle by Moonlight. Gold Coast. A scene which brings vividly to mind the days when these old castles housed the Merchant Adventurers and the dark baracoons of which held the slave gangs awaiting shipment to America and the West Indies.
Guggisberg's text:
'...the Castle under the moon - an atmosphere of shimmering white in the deep blue dimness of the night. The waters of the great Atlantic rollers, broken and spent on the broad reef, come rippling innocently now in little waves, kissed by the moonlight, on to the soft sand of the little bay. The touch of life in the lighted windows and gateway gives a strong relief to the picture - but above all and anything is the impression given by the shimmering atmosphere' (Guggisberg, Gold Coast News, no. 25).
