33 Regent Quay
A photograph of the south elevation of 33 Regent Quay taken in July 2018.

This long and narrow, neo-classical building, located at the bottom of Marischal Street, was designed by Robert Gordon Wilson and was built in 1901-02.

It was constructed as a harbour branch for the Aberdeen Town and County Bank. The bank occupied the ground floor. The first floor was occupied by offices for Messrs W. Leslie and Co., shipowners and there were further offices on the third floor.

The building of the new bank entailed the removal of a adjoining house in which the then late Baillie Berry had carried on his business as an optician for many years previous. This building had a sculpted figure known as "The Admiral" over its door.

Robert Gordon Wilson was apprenticed to Alexander Ellis, worked in the office of Alexander 'Greek' Thomson and later became Ellis's partner.
