Bank of Scotland, The Mound, Edinburgh  In 1863, David Bryce (1803-76) was commissioned to substantially rework Robert Reid and Richard Crichton’s much more modest original. Bryce produced this imposing Roman Baroque palace, with a particularly fine dome on an octagonal drum. Bryce tended to use renaissance styles for his bank buildings, of which there are many (two in St Andrew Square), but he also developed and refined the Scottish Baronial style, for example at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, and the French chateau style, such as at Fettes School. I photographed the bank here at night, from down below on Princes Street.  © Colin McLean Photography 2019
