+ Full Screen Image

I'll bet the original owner never dwelt upon how the contents of this pretty thing cost other men & women their freedom & lives. Just as we don't think about who makes our clothes.

This is a label written by a visitor to Manchester Art Gallery in response to the Revealing Histories: Remembering Slavery Gallery Trail of objects on display that are linked to the transatlantic slave trade.
