A series of astonishing buildings constructed in a variety
of 19th-century styles flanks the western side of the Savannah.
Notable are Killarney, after Balmoral Castle in Scotland,
with an Italian-marble gallery surrounding the ground floor;
Whitehall, constructed in the style of a Venetian palace
by a cacao-plantation magnate and currently the office of
the prime minister; Roomor, a flamboyantly Baroque colonial
house with a preponderance of towers, pinnacles, and wrought-iron
trim that suggests an elaborate French pastry; and the Queen's
Royal College, in German Renaissance style, with a prominent
tower clock that chimes on the hour.
