Cara Lodge, Georgetown, Guyana

The 1840s Cara Lodge is one of the finest examples of 19th century colonial wooden architecture, incorporating the Demerara windows, in Georgetown. These hinged windows were designed to pick up the breezes from the nearby Demerara River. Note the exquisite handiwork on the side panel carvings. The boxed area could accommodate ice slabs to help with cooling. Inside, the Bottle Bar Restaurant is one of Georgetown's best restaurants.
