History of the Building
This building is on the
south side of George Street, across the road from St Andrew's and St
George's church. It was designed by David Rhind, and
originally built as Head Office of the Commercial Bank. The
building opened in 1847.
ownership of the building moved to the National Commercial Bank of
Scotland then the Royal Bank of Scotland. It was a branch of
the Royal Bank of Scotland when I took the photograph above of the
RBS workers 'behind the counter' beneath the dome.
