Bank, built 1925-27 to designs of A N Paterson and Stoddart. Renaissance; tall single storey with steep slate roof and occupying corner site. Polished ashlar, contrasting granite detail and plinth. Symmetrical tripartite front to Clarkston Road, iron-balconied centre 3-light window in Doric 'in antis' frame, parapet over with sculpted vase finials; arched recesses in outer bays with prominent key-stones (ddor to right, scupltured crest over); flanl elevation to Gartly Street is a simplified version of the same composition.

INTERIOR: large banking hall, coffered ceiling with elliptical centre cupola, original fuill-width counter and partition along north (rear) wall.

Statement of Interest

"The Savings bank of Glasgow" sign placed on gable of tenement adjoining (437 Clarkston Road) is presumably also the work of Paterson and Stoddart.
