The City Chambers, Edinburgh
The City Chambers, Edinburgh
The City Chambers, the Home of Edinburgh City Council, were designed by John Adam (the eldest of the Adam brothers) as a Royal Exchange and Customs House. They were built in 1753-61 on top of an existing street - Mary King's Close - which now forms the basement (and a tourist attraction). The rear of the building stands 12 storeys above Cockburn Street.

The statue is of Alexander and Bucephalus.
