Grant’s Square

* Grant’s Square has entirely disappeared. ” It was,” writes Pr.
Robert Paterson, “the square in which existed the old Parliament
House, once occupied in Mary’s time. The room in which the Parliament
met must have been a spacious one, as when I remember it it
was divided ipto numerous smaller rooms for poor, tenants, but yet the
carved oak panelling and the richly-decorated roof told of former
magnificence. All has, however, now been cleared away, and replaced
by a granary.”
