    Another personal one, Sweenie's was owned by my great Uncle Jack Sweenie (my Mum's uncle). This was their shop and showroom in Smithhills St (where the road under the car park is now) and the warehouse was across the road beside the Old Swan. IIRC the showroom moved round the corner to Old Sneddon St.

    Tangerine Nigerian insult

    The unlikely story of how 'Dundee United' became an insult in Nigeria | Dundee United | The Guardian Spotted this on P&B. At least we managed a Nigerian tour without our name being adopted as an insult.

    But most intelligent people are NOT following a party, let alone a leader. Anyone who wants Scotland to be an independent nation are supporting the ideal. That ideal doesn't change with the leader of the party if the core cause of the party doesn't change. The SNP are not changing their message. If the polls were asking if people would vote for Sturgeon or for the merits of what the SNP have done in a union ruled Scottish assembly then those who voted for them because they thought the SNP would run the Scottish purse better, then may be swayed by this nonsense. I would imagine those are few and far between. We'll see what effect the recent scuffle has in May. With the likes of Anus Sawar, Rennie and Davidson as alternatives, I firmly believe the SNP will wipe the floor with that lot. ETA. I've just listened to Rennie and he's so afraid of the percentages in favour of Scottish Independence that he's asking believers of that cause to set it aside JUST NOW. Says it all.

    So let me get this straight. You’re saying that had he subbed Morias (who a blind man could see was running on empty) and we’d still lost due to the lack of ability of McAllister or Durmus to stem the tide, folk would’ve been up in arms at him subbing Morias?? Aye, let’s agree to disagree on that!

    The things you can do when young. I took my wife on a driving Holiday VW Polo in 1987 to Europe we did Holland, Germany Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria. We did it in 10 days 3,000. Could not dream of doing that now.

    No I don't know when it was taken. I've enlarged the aerial shot. The chippy is circled in yellow (and you can see the advertising boards arrowed.) Bank St is in red, the back courts of the "council buildings" side of Mill St is in blue and Cochran St is green.

    Fair cop, Guv! That wee detached bit of Bank Street's like an excised, abandoned, forlorn and decaying foreskin... (I imagine.) Still, cannae recall a chippy, there. Any idea when the pic was taken?

    I also refer you to this picture where you can clearly see Bank St running past the East School, crossing Mill St and onward to the New Town Cross with Gauze St/Silk St/Cotton St.

    You're RIGHT, of course! THAT was a major thoroughfare UNTIL Canal Street opened as a dual carriageway. Apologies.... The buses only moved to Canal Street after that, And the fit o' George Street became a one way...

    It's interesting to study this photo. There are considerably more buildings on Gauze St opposite Lawn St on the town centre side of Cotton St. Not sure if this photo is pre-war or post '45?

    Linky no worky Herbie? Is that the one that would now be under the Piazza? Think I was on that bus too, but never got a pint. You were tall right enough! A green version similar to this, as I disremember: I think mine was The Heilanman's in Renfrew 1975 18p a pint. Me n the wife used to spend £2 on a night oot paying Pool and Cairds in there. Good Jukebox.

    Two pertinent points for me. 1 Is that there seems to be little scope for councils for collaboration/enforcement in planning applications. Ie having a planning strategy that developers must adhere to to respect local objectives. At the moment a developer submits a plan and the Council can only effectively say yes or no. In Ireland Councils can for example say you must integrate an existing building into to plans and to help you do so we will reduce council tax/rates for a specific period to make it financially viable. No such flexibility exists in Scotland. 2 A report of 18 months ago by Historic Scotland stated that Blackhall could be repaired. The latest survey (by the Developers) states it was not economical. The government assessor noted how much the building had deteriorated in such a short time. When a developer purchases a listed building there should be an enforcement issued to ensure it was wind and watertight and secure. I can remember great controversy at Ferguslie Mills where developers were alleged to have opened windows and doors and removed all security to allow the elements and vandals in to let the buildings deteriorate and have to be demolished.

    I can think of one person/alias/troll(possibly all the same c**t) who would disagree with that. . The problem in this area is that we simply sweep away all our old buildings which could lead an unsuspecting member of the public thinking that , this area only appeared around the end of the 19th century ! Our heritage is simply being bulldozed away and has been for a long time.There are plenty of places down south where you will see loads of old building preserved , many of them going back to the Tudor times. .

    Hi guys. I am still alive! I know I have not posted for ages but this thread is by no means finished. I still have shots to show and have more shots to take. Other considerations have taken up my time and I am not saying more shots will appear in the next week or two but they will appear. Anyway this post is to tell everyone that I received a letter today confirming the demolition of Blackhall House, Hamilton House and Anchor House all at Blackhall Lane (opposite Morrisons) - the only surviving historic silk mill in Scotland. I was one of a hundred objections which included objections from Historic Scotland. Renfrewshire Council backed the objections and refused planning permission however the Developers took their plans to the Scottish Government who have approved the demolition. So now a Grade C Listed building in a prime riverside location in the only remaining historic industrial heartland of Paisley's heritage will be demolished to be replaced with more mass built, unimaginative and uninspiring housing. I am gutted at this. However if anyone wants to take some photos of another part of historic Paisley before it is turned into a nondescript wilderness you had better be quick.

    What Camden did with similar buildings ... but we are going to erect f**king more modern houses (and no amenities).

    Hey guys. The Council are now considering an application to demolish yet another historical building - Blackhall House. It is very easy to submit an objection if you are so inclined - took me about 2 mins. Don't let the bastards destroy everything ....

    Was in Paisley earlier today, armed with camera as usual. Took this one as I walked past this 'mystery location' on my way to somewhere else. The way the low winter light was lighting the scene caught my eye as I was going by. Pretty sure you guys will name the location...
