Montreal artist Shelley Miller creates "sugar murals" -- elaborate icing-sugar illustrations on tile that grace the sides of buildings. These often resemble stained glass or painted tile murals.

The image links source and destination for all of the “cargo” related to this history, both sugar barrels and human cargo that were carried across the oceans.
