Three semi-circular arches frame scenes of cherubic toddlers engaged in (left to right): counting money; design and engineering and agricultural activities. The building was originally the Union Bank of Scotland, a typical institution to extol the benefits of industry and hard work, even when undertaken by babies. The Union Bank's monogram is set into the balustrade above.
