The road to a new city

Only we to blame for a Capital with no character

Standing on shaky grounds, St. Clair, Trinidad.

It is a trend that seems to be happening and no one really cares. One day you see an old colonial house, then the next day it has vanished leaving behind a large empty dirt plot. This is what architects proclaim as progress at the will of their clients in the name of boxed steel and glass. Port of Spain, the capital of Trinidad and Tobago is changing in front of our very eyes and the conservationists who should be protecting these historic buildings seem less to care as the capital is beginning to lose its Caribbean quaintness.

This house has been destroyed.
