I had noticed the statues on this a long time ago but not looked at the details which was a mistake. This was built as the north British and mercantile insurance building which explains why the figure of St Andrew is standing on the boat and the theme of the other decorations. The two other figures are called the seafarer and the seafarers wife. These were added about twenty years after the building had opened.
200 St Vincent street. The main entrance in all its glory
St Andrew standing on a ship and holding the model of one.
The seafarer holding a model boat
The seafarers wife who also appears to be holding something but its not clear what.
The coat of arms on the right of the door showing London
The coat of arms on the left of the door showing Edinburgh
I almost missed this great little carving of a boy riding on a seahorse.
