"The truth is: the natural world is changing. And we are totally dependent on that world.
It provides our food, water and air. It is the most precious thing we have and we need to defend it."
Sir David Attenborough.

Some of the places and things in this gallery would have been known to Charles Waterton during his time in Demerara in the early 19th century; however, the spectacular Kaieteur Falls was not one of them, it was not discovered by Europeans until 1870 when a Briton, Charles Barrington Brown, first set eyes upon it. Stabroek Market serves as a reminder that the original settlement founded here by the Dutch was Stabroek, now this is part of a much larger Georgetown. For more pictures of Georgetown visit the Georgetown Gallery.

The pages in this gallery show a range of pictures, many taken by the author in 2012; others are taken from older newspapers and publications dating back to the 19th century.
