Chambers Street

Chambers Street was named after William Chambers who was elected Lord Provost of Edinburgh in 1865. North College Street and three residential squares built in the 18th century, Adam Square, Argyle Square and Brown Square were demolished under the civic improvement project. The area was used to build the spacious new thoroughfare. A statue of the Lord Provost can be seen on the pavement running along the southern side of the street.
