200 St Vincent street statues

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.
