I have to be fair here, buddy. I had disqualified Riya for giving an answer in the form of a question. So I will say you're asking the correct question.

Yes, the Chronicle newspaper was printed in Main Street for decades. The building stood opposite Hotel Tower. One trivia: in colonial time the first copies of the Chronicle were rushed to Government House down Main Street for the governor's reading pleasure.

I like the old style building . Had no idea about the trivia re the colonial times and the paper being rushed to Govt House for the Governor to read. I'm learning history and I love it, thank you Sir Gil for all your effort in doing this, I actually look forward to the questions every morning.

Sorry sir, I didn't see the rules being published. I thought your quiz show was like Jeopardy where you answer with a question. 

 

I remember looking up those stairs at the side of the Chronicle Building when I was a child and thinking that they were so many of them.

 

I think there was a disco up there after Chronicle left. Shabari?

Yes! And you might have noticed that Carmichael Street was named after him. He served as Governor of Demerara and Essequibo from 1812 to March 1813 when he died.

You get first prize.

Django gets second prize.

Congrats!!

How old is Georgetown as a city?

No correct answer yet. Read every word in this question.

Georgetown officially became a city in August 1842.

In August 2015 the city will be 173 years old.

Today, April 16, Georgetown is 172 years old.

Anyway, Gilbakka is a merciful man.

Django, Anjali and Riya are all winners.

Now, yuh all go and brush up on your subtraction. Don't mek da mistake again. Class dismissed.

Georgetown gained official city status on August 24, 1842, during the reign of Queen Victoria. In 1848, the British built a railroad, five miles (eight kilometers) long, from Georgetown to Plaisance, which was the first railroad on the South American continent.
