Burnham is a figure of many meanings.
He is, arguably, the most controversial Guyanese figure ever.
To most people who was not old enough to live under his reign,
he still remains a mystery. In fact, even for many who lived under
his rule, Burnham was quite unknown although he seemed to be everywhere
through his symbols, speeches, phlosophy, political subordinates
and the sign of the times which he singlehandedly embodied. These
images are posted here for two reasons; first, historical; and
secondly, to bring the man, the politician, the feared leader
closer to the viewer.
