Above the doorway of the former Glasgow Savings Bank headquarters building in Ingram Street is a statue of Saint Mungo and other sculptures designed by George Frampton and carved by William Shirreffs. The prominent dome covers the former banking hall.

Built in the 1890s to the plans of architect J J Burnet, the single-storey banking hall was added to the front of the existing Glasgow Savings Bank which had been designed by his father John Burnet and erected thirty years earlier. It is built to a Baroque-inspired design, with fine ornate ironwork in the main doors.
