When I saw this thread I suddenly thought of (slightly off topic) the new horrible addition to the architecture of Paisley - those clad ridden appartments opposite the Abbey. How on earth did they wangle planning permission for those in such a prestigeous site!

I`m not sure if it was owned buy Langs. I worked in langs in the late seventies and they operated from the building that is dingbro motor factors now. They also had the yard & buildings where pro life is now but i cant remember them owning the building in the picture.

Actually it's Lang.Even I wrote it down wrongly.

If you look at the picture more closely,there's a clue.

Great idea for a thread!!!

Opp the Aul Grun.

I now pass by it as I walk to the airyplane place. smile.png

When I was a lad, the PDE used to have an unidentified weekly foto of some interesting lump of Paisley architecture, that meant I kept my eyes looking up at, and admiring, all the buildings in the lovely town. It was a good part of my education.

(Of course the lump was revealed the following week.)

I remember that PDE feature too but are you sure you were just a lad? I would have thought it was a bit later than that. Hairy arsed schoolboy springs to mind.

The next picture in the series should need no introduction as everyone knows the building. Those of a certain vintage would also have spent some time inside this building when still at school. I am so sorry to see it is up for sale but as long as its put to good use and not pulled down like so many other great Paisley buildings.

Aye Bluto I have many memories of sitting in that chair behind these corner windows. Always liked it in the summer when the windows were open a wee bit and I would sneak a look up Causeyside St.

I have no idea about any plans for it and will maybe show some close up shots of the poor kids and statue at a later date.
