Stollmeyer’s Castle (n)- Built by Charles Fourier Stollmeyer, Killarney was the first house to be constructed in the St Clair subdivision, established on lands which had previously been used as the government stock farm. Construction started in 1902 and was completed in 1904.
A Scottish firm designed Killarney also known as Stollmeyer’s Castle [sic] Castle in 1902. The design employs several elements from Balmoral Castle in Scotland, such as the tower and the pepperpot turret this is corbeled from its wall. The diagonal wing projecting the corner has a steep roof with a crowstep gable. A combination of pale yellow brick and blue-grey dressed stone.
Trinidad & Tobago words and phrases can be traced to their English, French and Spanish origins.
Growing up in Trinidad and Tobago is interesting because the slangs can change over time. I have lived in the United States for 20 years now and every time I travel back to Trinidad and Tobago I have to reacquaint myself with the words and phrases that have evolved.
