Title: Queen's Royal College, Port of Spain, Trinidad, B.W.I.
Abstract: A child and adult with a red umbrella stand outside the fence on the right of this early, front, exterior view of the Queen’s Royal College (QRC), Maraval Road, Queen's Park West, Port of Spain, Trinidad. QRC was opened, at this location, on March 25, 1904 by Governor Sir Alfred Maloney. The building was designed by Daniel M. Hahn, qualified architect and chief draughtsman in the Department of Public Works, who was a past student of the college. The late architect John Newel Lewis described the architecture of QRC as "a pastiche of Renaissance and Venetian details." A clock presented to the school in 1913 by William Gordon was added to the tower after the rendering of this image. The origin of QRC goes back to the Stuart Grammar School, at the corner of Duke and Edward Street. In 1870, the school became the Queen's Royal College and was housed at the Prince's Building, Port of Spain. When the Government Farm moved from St Clair in 1899, part of the land was reserved as a new home for QRC through the intervention of acting Governor Sir Courtney Knollys (adapted from http://qrc.edu/about). Postcard number 1017.
