Scope and Content First-floor plan of north block of Edinburgh City Chambers (formerly 'Royal Exchange'), City of Edinburgh Built as the Royal Exchange, Edinburgh City Chambers began as a complex of shops, printers, flats, coffee-houses and offices. The council kept ownership of only the north block which became the City Chambers after the old tolbooth was demolished in 1810. Originally, the north block was leased out to the government as a Customs House. The elobaration of the three-bayed centrepiece is one of Fergus's additions to Adam's original design. The Royal Exchange was the first of a series of civic improvements began by Lord Provost George Drummond who laid the foundation-stone with great ceremony in September 1753.
