Stinking auld steamers begging

Where that phone box is and when it was the rosebud,

you used to get auld trampy wasters begging for the

price of a pint there.

Does this still happen?

I remember a stinking auld cùnt wearing a leeds rugby league top asking me for

a quid once, I thought to myself what connection has this tramp with leeds, then

it occurred to me that the smelly auld cùnt probably bought it in a charity shop.

The Rosebud had the best Pool Team in the Paisley and District League in the early 1980's.

Scary bunch tae.

Lol

they also had the best darts team and dominoes team, the owner used to pay the best players to be in his teams, either by cash or by way of free drink

I was a member of the Knox Street Supporters Club, at that time. They ran 2 buses to every away match in that era.

Happy days.

Perhaps you know my Uncle Eddie fairly sure he was one of the guys that ran the buses from there.

Rosebud was the place I went from , remember going to Dumbarton during week , bus broke down ended up with late replacement from McGills :)

Happy days , oh aye great picture of the west end I used to rent a flat in Sandholes St as a teenager as I get back on topic :P

A guy they called Big John and Ian Cuthbertson ran the buses. There was a wee dude called Eddie who went on the bus. He wore a Saints tammy and always had his wee son with him.

Ah that was him , wasn't sure if he ran it or was always on it.

There used to be lots of buses to away games back then , happy days indeed.

Still great picture of the west end :)

I think between 1977 and the early 1980's we used to regularly take 14 Buses to away matches.

Now get back on Topic or Sonny will go mental. bangin.gif

Driving down the ferguslie road I noticed a cauldren carved into a wall. Can't find any info on it any one know anything. I guess that it's been the site of an old hospital and the stone has been reused in the wall.



ETA could also have been a dye works I suppose?

On the wall think there is a care home or something opposite the stables

You can see it on google maps not sure if the link will work

Ta for that. :)

I somehow never ever noticed that before. Used to just be fields behind that wall (for the cuddies? ) then the Stables were used by the ambulance service for years.

I went on Google earth and got a close-up swatch of it. Mortar and pestle, as you say. Intriguing.... :unsure:

Sonny should have done that long ago. And then explained it to us. (When I get on a PC, I'll look at my old Paisley stuff to see if there's ocht...)

While we're at it what about the £ sign on well street? Pawn brokers? Bank? loan shark?

Was allways meaning to take a photo of the £ sign, the house across the road from it also

has a sign on it some kind of shield. the corner of well st and clavering street.
