Fans on the pitch at Love Street as St Mirren win Division One in 1976/77.

May be an image of one or more people, people standing and outdoors

Will somebody inform him ?

I and many others were there that day. He wasn't. He has no memories of Fergie's Furies. Toxic Titch from Arbroath has never supported St Mirren and never will.

He loves to abuse, troll, bully and belittle St Mirren fans.

My gran used to live on the top floor flat, just to the right of the no entry sign, above The Sou'Western Bar.

I now it was the to floor because I had to go down stairs to the loo on the landing.

Porterfield Road and a line of 20 trams patiently sitting ready to take home some of the eight thousand Babcock & Wilcox workers at the end of their working day. The company actually paid to have the tram lines laid down Porterfield road

It is good manners to credit your source! I just read that word for word on another site with the same photo!

Cracking picture of a bygone era.

Santa was 1 of many thousands  who got the sack after Babcock merged with a company called FKI Electricals in 1987. 

If memory served me right, FKI cut everything to the bone and it was a bad time for the workers in Renfrew. 

The trams were before my time when starting at the company.

I must have been up/down Porterfield Road hundreds of time in my 10 years working at "Babbies".

The tram lines were long gone in my time, but could have down with them on the Friday rush up to the pub, gulping down a stupid amount of drink, and rushing back.

Quite how I, and many others, never had a serious accident is a miracle.

Couldn't find the film of the trams filling up and dispersing to the various destinations. Was on one of the Paisley Facebook pages, thought it was Paisley, oor wee toon.
