Scope and Content Clydesdale Bank Building, 29-31 George Street, Edinburgh The former Clydesdale Bank Building, chief Edinburgh office of the Clydesdale Bank, stands at the corner of George Street and Hanover Street. Designed by David Bryce in 1841 for the Edinburgh and Leith Bank, it was extended down Hanover Street in 1847. The entrance to the Bank is from George Street. The upper floor, with its giant Corinthian pilasters and pairs of Corinthian columns set forward from them, is very typical of David Bryce's Greco-Roman style. The Clydesdale Bank was founded in Glasgow in 1838 in the rise of Glasgow's prosperity as the centre of the cotton, iron manufacturing, engineering and shipbuilding industries. It opened with its head office in Glasgow, and one branch in Edinburgh. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
