Old mill

Durant l'esclavage, du 18è au 19è siècle, à cet endroit, il y avait un moulin. On peut voir les vestiges de la machine qui servait à broyer la canne à sucre pour obtenir le jus qui chauffé à forte températuure se transformait en sucre.

During the slavery, from the 18 the to the end of the 19 th century, in this place, there was a mill. We can see the vestiges of the machine which served for crushing the sugar cane to obtain the juice which warmed in strong heat was transformed into sugar.

Durante la esclavitud, del 18è al 19è el siglo, en este lugar, había un molino. Podemos ver los vestigios de la máquina que servía para moler la caña de azúcar para obtener el jugo que calentado a fuerte calor se transformaba en azúcar.

Cette habitation n'a pas été touchée après la fin de son exploitation.

This place has not been visited since the end of its exploitation (beginning of 20th century) until 1990s.

Super et c'est etonnant qu'il y ait encore des vestiges. Merci pour ces informations tres interessantes. It is quite amazing to see some of the equipment, though not in use, still in this location. Thank you for this very useful piece of information.

nice photo and good history lesson. I've never been to your lovely island but visited many other Caribbean islands which have similar sugar mills/plantations worked by slaves. A reminder of the world's inhumanity.

Domino and Thiagotdi, this picture is taken in the ruins of the "Crève-Coeur plantation", in Sainte-Anne, south of my natve island, Martinique.
Domelia, I did not realize that I posted it on may 10th, the "national" memorial Slavery abolition .
(I put "brackets", because in Martinique, our Slavery abolition Day is on may 22nd)
