Stephen Nancoo, 65, likes to see it

He has a treasure trove of old
newspapers dating back to the 70s,
albeit not in the best of condition

papers from that era."

Nancoo, who describes himself
as an artisan, recalled that the
Guardian cost ten cent in the 70s.

Nancoo also claimed that the
US President Donald Trump was
responsible for the modern cine-
ma-going concept in Trinidad and
proudly brought out his well-worn
book by Donald Trump in 1987,
The Art of the Deal.
