Artist's Description

Historic Scotland Category A Listed Buildings

The low December winter sun lights up the buildings when looking West along George Street in Edinburgh, Scotland.

On the right, on the north side of George Street is the former Standard Life’s Head Office (built in three stages from 1897 to 1901), now the Head Office of Standard Life’s subsidiary, Standard Life Investments.

A little further down the street to its left is St Andrew’s & St George’s West Church (formerly St Andrew’s church).

Completed in 1784, the church is oval shaped. It’s claimed that there are no corners for the Devil to hide!

St Andrew’s & St George’s West Church was the first centre of Christian worship in Edinburgh New Town. The spire was added in 1787.

St Andrew’s & St George’s West Church is an Historic Scotland Category A Listed Building (Ref Number 27283).

The Standard Life building is an Historic Scotland Category A Listed Building (Ref Number 28829).
