Artist's Description

The Bank of Scotland was founded on 17th July 1695, when the Parliament of Scotland (which 12 years later was to vote itself out of existence for 292 years) passed an Act of Parliament establishing a national bank to support commerce and facilitate trade. (The Bank of Scotland was forbidden to lend money to the government without Parliamentary approval.) In 1806 the Bank of Scotland moved their headquarters to this building at the top of the Mound, just below the High Street. The street was named Bank Street after the bank. Despite Pat Robertson, the Halifax, and Lloyds TSB, they are still there today.
