This photograph shows one of the entrances from the Loggia or entrance hall to the grand staircases of Glasgow City Chambers, 1888. The life-size figure to the left of the door holds a laurel wreath and the figure to the right a key. The inscription above them echoes the one at the Old Tolbooth: "Virtue is rewarded, Evil doers are punished." Above the doors on the opposite side of the Loggia inscriptions, there are inscriptions which declare that vice is hateful and peace is beloved.
