Did they not stock toys and airfix kits and that sort of stuff.

Among the toys I got from there was Arnold Palmer ProShot Golf and an Action Man Argyll and Sutherland Highlander outfit.

We were quite poor in those days but I do remember having loads of fun with the Action Man Deserter figure

Ah Arnold Palmer proshot golf I remember it well, with the felt putting green and the tiny clubs attached to the shank then my Johnny seven gun afterwards. Boom.

Fantastic video from 1991, fast forward to around 6:15 onwards to see what the area around the stadium used to be like.

There was a similar video going around showing Gallowhill, 

Also one around the West End?

Ive seen the Linwood Toll to West End and back video but not the Gallowhill one. Not much will have changed in G.hill other than the changes at Rockfield, Brabloch and McDonald's.

O yes there will be changes. I no longer stay there!!. Seriously,  no shops with tic like Willie Warnocks in Gallowhill Road, no co-op, no Galbraiths,

no Alisons Dairy (I think that was the name) horse and float,  no street football.

If the Gallowhill video is around would very much appreciate if it could be posted here.

As i've said before, keep the photos coming.

I had a quick look last night, couldn't find it.

I'll try later after work.

I really like that and would agree with many of the ideas, but...

… those ideas will founder for the same reason that the Town Centre's many social and food outlets are currently NOT flourishing.

 

Where is the provision for ample free parking?  Or free public transport into the centre?

Scores of thousands of Buddies but so many living on its periphery.  Encourage them into the town centre.

 

And the weather doesn't help.    

That was one of the benefits of Paisley Centre.  It could be accessed and exited via several locations.  Buddies could be out of the inclement weather whilst going from shop to shop to café... 

 

Its a good document for discussion.
