GUYANA: Central Georgetown on a Sunny Day

 Have a nice day!  Today we took our camera to the roof of the Hand in Hand Building to get a never before seen look at central Georgetown on a sunny day. Photos by Alva Solomon.
A view of City Hall. The edifice has been deemed one of the more Gothic sights in terms of architecture in Georgetown. The building is featured in many mediums locally and internationally as being very picturesque . The building itself has been through a tough period in recent years and the previous and current administration have announced plans to carry out critical rehabilitation works on the structure which was built in 1889.

Parallel parking along Avenue of the Republic. Over the past several weeks the authorities have introduced parallel parking signs along city streets as a measure to ease the growing traffic problems in the city.

.Overcast conditions prevailed over this Stabroek Market view as the suns heat sweltered during the morning. The temperature along the Coastland has been in the highs in recent times but there are signs of rains as the holiday draw to a close.

    Alva
    Some stunning photos of GT…through the eyes of your camera.
    Certainly worth sharing with us in the “diaspora”……suggest you
    save them for a exhibition at some later date…if not done so already.

    Suggestion
    Try obtaining photos of past GT to exhibit…..THEN V NOW.
    Am sure available in GT or archives of BBC.

    WISH YOU LUCK
    and thanks.
