  1. Well done Rabuddies, From what I can remember, the town hall was so much "posher". I may also be wrong but i don't think it was the South Minor since you entered to the left of the main door. I warmed your seat, just. Desperately Seeking, you are correct, any Tom, Dick and even me could be fed in either of the canteens.
  2. I think "Glasgow's" the Pram Shop was just after Galbraiths in Cotton Street?
  3. Wonderful photos and information about Paisley Theatres. I remember being taken to see Syncopating Sandy at Paisley Theatre. He is reputed to have played the piano for 133 hours in 1956. It was not in Paisley so I guess he came as the " World Champion" around 1957ish. I can remember walking down the one side of the theatre along the front and up the other side and out. Gerry Rafferty has a song about him.

    Hibernian v St Mirren 5 Dec 18

    St Ricky, our manager at the AGM on Tuesday identified the Hibs winger as the big danger due to his speed. He seems according to you to have been spot on.

    Paisley Pubs

    Not a lot of homework done on the article "in the centre of Paisley" I don't think so. Antrim, the Tannery is in Bridge of Weir.

    Samson to Sunderland

    What about Dave Walker, Scottish Cup winner or colourful Jimmy Brown etc etc and back to subject Samson correct to accept what in his judgement will improve his standard of living. As any sensible person would. Forget having a " contract" . As we continue to read football is different from any other business and that is certainly true when it comes to contracts. Clubs continually sell players before the players contracts are completed.

    Renfrewshire Golf Courses

    You swine it was mine. It had my name on it so give me it back but then again don't since you will drop me in it because we used to tee of from the 5th at 8.30 on a Sunday since the local rule was no teeing off before I think it was 9.30. Remember coming down the 18th one Sunday and hundreds at the first tee. The course was closed for us yins so a quick exit via Newton Avenue . Long walk back to car parked at baths. Aye these were the days.
  9. Car registration numbers with ?GA followed by numbers were registered in Glasgow and from Paisley they were XS followed by numbers. Was the Job Centre and Menzies Distribution not in Hunter Street and "whydowebothwer" don't forget Alexanders Sports Shop and Bryces TV shop. Also in Moss Street was the TSB and Glovers the Newsagent. I wish I had a Pound for every time I went up and down the path from Moss Street to School Wynd.
  10. 59er. 're third awning in Gauze Street. Don't remember a Galbraiths but it could have been Menzies the Ham Curer and general grocery. I was sent there on a Saturday to get the Wiltshire back bacon. I am pretty sure the shop is now the cafe Bianca Nero.
  11. Wonderful photos. Keep them coming. In a previous photo with the Abbey, could that be Rae the Coal Merchants Lorry and Cunninghams Bus? Re lousy Lager, many moons ago there was a pub just before Kennedys coming from the Cross which if I remember correctly was an Edinburgh Brewers pub and sold Skol. Can you recall the name? The railway network link with so much information brings back memories of my "Anorak Days"
  12. Great news, well done "pod" to find link. Interesting, in the last 5 years 1.6 million has already been spent on the Town Hall. I hope the plans are not to demolish the "upper balcony" . Sang there with the School choir. A these were the days.
  13. Great photo. Was the road opposite the main entrance to Fudgie, Hudgie and Budgie on Renfrew Road also called Great Hamilton Street or was it just Hamilton Street. Used it to go via the footbridge on way to Racecourse and Love Street.

    Controversy Tonight ?

    Agree 100%. Andrew Dallas can expect a phone call from Eddie Smith explaining how to invent free kicks when "they" are within 30 yards from goal.
