Scope and Content Conservative Club under reconstruction as Debenhams, No 112 Princes Street, Edinburgh Princes Street was originally the south-facing terrace of James Craig's New Town. From the 1830s, reconstruction continued to transform the street into Edinburgh's principal thoroughfare of hotels, department stores, shops, offices and clubs. The original façade of the building, designed by Sir Robert Rowand Anderson in 1882-4, was retained, and a completely new interior constructed behind it. A short section of front wall was added to the east end of the façade. In 1978-81, the new Debenhams department store was designed and built behind this original façade. Rowand Anderson's main front staircase was moved to the rear of the new building, and replaced by the first circular glass-enclosed lifts in Edinburgh. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
