Edinburgh Building: Description
Like the Kinimonth building (Scottish Provident) on the south side of St Andrew's Square, this central office building wraps round an existing New Town corner block, here the strong neoclassical of J M Dick Peddie and George Washington Browne.

Opposite the George St infill section of Standard Life Assurance Edinburgh building is The Dome, George St, by David Rhind, 1847. Former branch of the Royal Bank of Scotland on south side of George Street - now a bar like many old banks on this street - The Dome contains, suitably for the name, a large stained glass dome. The bank building's old facade is a well-proportioned portico.
To the west along George St is St Andrew's & St George's Church, 13 George Street, a building by Major Andrew Frazer 1782-84.
