So, I was driving back home from Saturday night service at my Church, and I drove past this street (which I’ve done before). But this time, I was like, “oh, that would make such a cool photo”. And since I had nothing better to do, I decided to pull a U-turn and, voila, here’s what we got. On a scale of “Ugh, that didn’t turn out” to “Wow, those photos turned out amazing!”, I’d have to rate this a, “Hmm, not bad”, in my assessment.

William Wilberforce (1759-1833) was an English M.P. who became a Christian at the age of 25/26, sparking “major changes to his lifestyle and a lifelong concern for reform” (as puts it). He was a leading figure in the (eventually successful) fight to abolish the slave trade across the British Empire, and also founded such causes as the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).

“If to be feelingly alive to the sufferings of my fellow-creatures is to be a fanatic, I am one of the most incurable fanatics ever permitted to be at large.”

“You may choose to look the other way but you can never say again that you did not know.”

William Wiberforce (1759-1833), English MP and pioneer in abolishing the slave trade across the British Empire
