Title
The Parliament House, Edinburgh
Description
The curved building of Parliament House in Parliament Square, Edinburgh. The three storey Georgian building has an arched walkway at its base and a balustrade runs round the edge of the roof. The roof is also decorated with classical relief panels and statues of sphinxes. Wealthy people stroll around the square and admire the statue of Charles II on a horse. To the right of the statue a stone mason works on some stone with a mallet, which appears to be for repairs to St. Giles Kirk, which sits to the right.
