Edinburgh’s Art Deco Heritage 23: George Street

Funny I hadn’t really noticed this one before.

On corner of George Street and North Castle Street, Edinburgh.

Former Royal Bank of Scotland premises. Good detailing round the door:-

Edinburgh’s Art Deco Heritage 8: George Street

I spotted this when we were at the book sale in Edinburgh on the 11th May. It has the look of deco about it. From this angle the stepped back roof isn’t too apparent.

It abuts the very deco Capital Building on the corner of St Andrew’s Square.

There’s another very geometric building on its other side.

A bit too much glass to be true deco but there are lots of strong horizontals and verticals.

Here are the two from an angle which also shows the Capital Building on the extreme left and the roof stepping.

St Andrew’s & St George’s Church War Memorials

There are various plaques to war dead in the stairwell of St Andrew’s & St George’s Church, George Street, Edinburgh where we attended a Christian Aid booksale last Saturday.

One is for the “members of this congregation” and beside it is one for Edinburgh Stock Exchange:-

Below these is the St Andrew’s Church Roll of Honour.

The WW2 memorial is on the opposite stairwell.

There are more plaques in the lower portion. Due to the gubbins surounding the book sale I couldn’t get close enough to photograph them as I would have liked.
