Slave Trail on South Side of River

"The path follows along the river because at the vanished Manchester docks and along its north bank wharves, slaves were brought in by boat, marched in chains to their holding cells in Shockoe Bottom and prepared for sale."

I suggest you clarify this sentence...it leaves the impression that the Slave Trail is on the north side of the river. I understand that some slaves were brought in on the north side, but the commemorative trail today is on the south side of the river.
