This drawn plan shows the proposed alterations to the Royal Exchange following the fire of January 1838. It also shows sections of the main building and the merchants' area. The fire, believed to have started in the Lloyds Rooms occupying the main part of the building, destroyed the Exchange for the second time. The new Royal Exchange, designed by Sir William Tite, was opened by Queen Victoria in October 1844.
