The building of St George's church began in 1811 and was completed in 1814 at an expense of 33,000. 

The view above looks to the north-east towards St George's Church on the East side of Charlotte Square, facing into the Square.  

The Book Modern Athens,  which featured the engraving above, also contained a second view of this church, taken from George Street on the opposite side of the Square.
