The Assembly Rooms - 1829
The book Modern Athens
described the Assembly Rooms in 1829:
"The Assembly-rooms occupy
a building of considerable elegance, the front of which has
recently been ornamented by an arcade and pediment.
The internal rooms were
"A Ball-room, 92 feet in
length, in width 42 and in height 40. On the ground- floor
is a Supper-room of the same length and breadth as the ball-room
but not rising to an equal height."
The Assembly Rooms - Today
Assembly Rooms are now used
to hold dances, antique fares and other events. The rooms
busy during the Edinburgh Festival in August each year.
