38 St. Andrew Square

This was one of the several impressive Bank Head Offices in Edinburgh in the 19th century.  This building is numbered 38-39 St Andrew Square.  It was designed by David Brice and built in 1851-52.

It became a Bank of Scotland Building following the takeover of the British Linen Bank by Bank of Scotland, then a HBoS building following the merger of Bank of Scotland and Halifax Building Society.

Please click on the image below to see an early engraving of the building at the time that it was the British Linen Bank's Head Office:
