Description
Location: 
Room occupies the basement of 10 Tolombat Street, Although seemingly just another Belle Epoque building in Garden City, 10 Tolombat Street hides plenty of rich history. During World War II the British Army made it their headquarters and nicknamed it "Number 10". In secret dispatches British 
officials referred to 10 Tolombat as "Grey Pillars".

Many historic figures have walked through these elegant gates including 
Charles de Gaulle, Oliver Lyttleton, Chaim Weizmann and Anthony Eden. Historians say de Gaulle and Lyttleton negotiated the independence of Syria and Lebanon in this very building. 

More than seven decades later Room occupies the basement of 10 Tolombat Street.

Although still referred to as Tolombat, the street's name was recently changed to "Etehaad Al Mohamin Al Arab Street".
