This building was erected in 1857 by The West of England and South Wales District Bank. The architects W. B. Gingell and T. R. Lysaght, based its High Renaissance style in Jacopo Sansovino’s Library of St. Mark, Venice. It has been occupied by Lloyds Bank Limited since 1892 and the exterior remains substantially in its original form. The facade is full of allegories and we can see a lot of mathematical objects:
