MONOCHROME MONDAY #136: BEAD BEACH


This week's series of blogposts is entitled: "On the Beach"

BEAD BEACH lies to the north of East London and is so named because carnelian beads and shards of Ming pottery periodically wash up on the beach.  These "treasures" are thought to be from the cargo of a Portuguese ship, the Santo Espirito which ran aground in 1608 on a voyage from China to Portugal.
