Scope and Content Ante-chamber to Old Council Room inside 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. The picture over the fireplace in the ante-chamber on the first floor represents Edinburgh Castle and dates to 1886. The ante-chamber was modified in 1859 when one wall was removed so that it opened directly onto the Old Council Chamber. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
