Tollbooth was built in 1591it has had a wide-ranging past, originally constructed as a place that the tolls or public dues were collected. It has also served as the council house, courtroom and prison for the Canongate..The clock face is dated 1820, this replaced an earlier clock from the 17th Century. The interesting thing about this painting is how it shows the different generations of construction work. The building on the left is modern; the arches below are not part of the original design. The architect of this monstrosity wants locking up and the key throwing away! The really interesting thing about this building is the protruding section onto the pavement (sidewalk), look at the middle row of windows. See how you have two and a half window frames, the protruding section being added after the main construction was completed
