Christianborg Castle, On the Gold Coast (now Ghana) in 1859. The first trading fort on this site was built by the Swedes, and subsequently passed through Portuguese, African, and Danish hands. With Danish abolition of the slave trade in 1804, it fell into disuse and was sold to the British in 1850, who used as a residence of the British Governor of Gold Coast, 1877-1857.
