Paisley - My Pics Of Old Or Unusual Buildings Or Places Of Interest.

There looks to be 1 flat with balcony on a sorta eastern aspect, (above Marshall lane) from which you might benefit from the southern warmth, but it’s sunsets would be blocked by Orchard Street.

 

perhaps I’m just a big saftie.

Spot on. Exactly what I thought when I saw it. Only one balcony has a chance of early morning sun.

No comparison with property in Cotton Street facing the Abbey.

very interesting.    A 2 bed here would start about 3 or 400,00.  One we looked at recently has just been reduced to over 700,000.

Haven’t looked really closely at the Cart development yet, but my expectation now for a new 2 bed flat, is for 2 bathrooms. At least.  The one mentioned only has 1!

must be more bowel problems down here than for those folk who are used to clenching their buttocks by watching St Mirren...
 

I understand sorta.... why the best views, and outdoor spaces face the Abbey and Toon Hall, but how about the warmer caress of a south-facing/western sunset verandah?

our Sooth-facing, Cooncil living room and Verandah (overlooking Canal Street) had day-long warmth and light... and we’d gather in the evening at the kitchen windae, when anyBuddie noted a fantastic sunset.  Often.  :)
 

(I think I got “south”right this time...)

 

 

We used to have great views of just about everywher, from top floor of heriot court. Then we moved down onto brediland road, then to have views of trees and main road😮

When they brought the tower down, I didn't think it went that far. :whistle

I thought the paisley view at the foot of the following (interesting)web page, was fascinating, but frustrating as I couldnae figure out where it was shot from.

I did get there.  :)

Barshaw park.  Probably taken by a drone.

Just spotted another braw view of Paisley and Coats kirk from far away (Bridge of Weir!) in this week's pictures of Scotland.

Your pictures of Scotland 22 - 29 January - BBC News

I drop in there weekly to get my Jock-fix...  I am too tough to EVER get homesick.  :)

You'll enjoy scrolling down to find it - then soon below it is another of Paisley: there's an excellent Mill/Cart reflection view.

Lifted from Facebook, stunning.........................

I know it might be extravagant, but wouldn't it be great to light up more of our wonderful tenements.
These lovely examples are on the corner of Maxwellton St. and George St. and the corner of Johnstone St. and Causeyside St.

Catherine has been posting some excellent photos of inside and outside of Paisley tenements.

I take it these buildings would have made way for the ring road? 
They would've been just where the roads on the left are, you can see the same William Street flats. Screenshot_20210204_172743_com.google.android_apps_maps.thumb.jpg.f2cb46d53f57c9da9d0928cac1fbb49f.jpg

This is what it looked like when I lived in the West End early 70s. The tenement is gone and you can see The Ogilvie Club behind where it stood. Gallows Green Rd wasn't built until the 90s.

The modern white / blue building to the right of the tenement was the head office of Semple Cochrane. They became a big company in the 1980s / 1990s but the business collapsed in some sort of financial scandal (allegedly).

Do you have an electrical connection to remember that.
