Ingenio La Amistad
"Sugar Plantation La Amistad" (caption translation). This image shows a plantation yard, steam mill, great house, etc.; wattle-and-daub thatched houses of the enslaved are on the left, and workers in the field in lower right. The accompanying text gives information on location, ownership, technical features of sugar production (the estate specialized in the production of muscavado sugar and rum) and similar data. Justo German Cantero (1815-1871) was born in Trinidad, Cuba. The image shown here is from the 1984 reprint which only reproduces, on a smaller scale, 13 of the 28 colored lithographs found in the original 1857 edition. Images in the latter can be viewed on the British Library website, Images Online.
