dc.description.abstract Early, exterior, front view of the Queen’s Royal College (QRC) in Port of Spain, Trinidad, highlighting the school's tower, tall windows, and the monolithic, concrete columns at its entrance. QRC was opened on March 25, 1904 at Queen's Park West 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." the clock in the clock tower was presented to the school in 1913 by William Gordon. 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, at the top of Frederick Street (now the home of the National Academy for the Performing Arts). 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). en
