George Washington Savings Bank is an example of late Georgian Architecture (1765-1811). The architect, Robert Adam, is known for replacing the heavy coffering of Palladian ornament in favor of the more balanced geometric Neo-classical designs. The egg-and-dart, simple beading, laurel motifs identify, ribbed decoration identify this period.
The enrichment of the frieze, in conjunction with the cornice, is a vital element of the late Georgian wall design. Classical motifs such as urns, crossed weapons with shields or simple wreaths and rosettes are typical of the Adam style.
