Re photo of Storie Street 1954. From the bottom left corner is the pub that was well supported

by the Farmers on market days.  After the pub, was that the side entrance to Priorscroft Bowling Club?

Definitely not Priorscroft Bowling Club which is in East End Park off Cochrane Street.

Noticed a garden plot type set up at the end of Underwood Road last week, near the roundabout, looked new? 

It's called an Allotment.

Was previously sited in Sutherland St but moved as the Cooncil needed the land for an other purpose.

is it a council thing or private? 

Only glanced as I drove past, looks like lots of raised wooden, erm, no sure what you'd call them. 

Were you in Paisley for the game?

This picture proves it's aw elderslie on here.

No one has asked how that bus jammed itself in there. 

It’s more Paisley than Elderslie!

and it was probably open-mic day down in the garage.

 

all kinds of vehicles used to turn up for those jam sessions

4 Moncrieff St 1947.

Now, I know a wee bit of Moncrieff St still exists (it's the wee stub of a road off Love St which allows access to the car park sitting between Love St and Back Sneddon St) but I just can't place this. The spire in the background might be the Oakshaw Trinity?

T Y Antrin for confirmation.  What a map you have found. Do you think the water from the St Mirren's Burn

was used in the Baths He He. I am pretty certain there used to be a red telephone box at the same corner.

St.James Church.... possibly. (gas tank to the left of spire in your picture)

I thought that to the left of that kirk spire in the fotie, there was the outline of the gasworks - so considered it MIGHT be St James spire, but at street level on Google Earth. you can't see any spires from the current wee bit of Moncrieff Street.

So I went down to the current Glen Street and you CAN see the St James spire from there but it seems much further away than in the fotie.

Only G. Street view visual that gives a decent High Kirk view is from Back Sneddon - at the north side of the RBS car park.  That looks likely but what is that Gas-worksy shape to the spire's left?

Fake news.

The article has a quote from "the owner of the firm".

He said: “Opening a new store is always an exciting moment for the company and Paisley is no exception.

“The job provision that comes with the new store, especially with it being a new build, should be a great boost to the local area.”
