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

Recommended Posts


Has this building featured before but from another side?

Buildings will only feature once HSS. If there are several good buildings on the same site then they will be featured individually but only once. However in this instance the Architect has been featured before and his style is rather unique.

Same sort of style as the Church in Gordon St.

yes , it did look like that church as you said earlier, but i can see that from my house and it doesn't have slates over the doorway like this one, it's definitely the building on the corner of violet street and cyril street

I am sure you are correct. It may have originally been called the East End church. At one time it was The HQ of Williamsbugh housing association; may still be. No idea what it is used for nowadays.

I drove past there the other day - completely didn't even notice it. But it is exactly as budiecat says!

It's a beautiful building! I'd be surprised if it isn't the same architect as St Matthew's.

bollox - you got it wrong, where's the golf shop in that area ? tongue.png

He never said he was getting them from a golf shop. Plenty dodgey deals to be done down Lacy Street.

Well guys, business resumes!!

It has been a busy summer with non-football related matters (No to Newco) and holidays and other shit taking up my time but a bright new season is upon us so by popular demand it is time to start up this thread again.

If you can remember the last Clue was for Pic 83 attached. It was constructed in Violet St. in 1899-1904 as the Ralston UF Church. Designed by W D McLennan who designed many fine buildings in Paisley including the Tech and the Bull Inn. Art nouveau interpretation of Gothic.

My Granny used to live nearby and I always thought it was a fine building but tucked away where many would not be able to see it. Not sure what its current use is.

Sid posted another image so I'll let that one be identified before I start with the next one in this series (I am expecting a complete and unabridged history with plenty of photographs of the next building ktf!!!).

Good one Sid. I don't know but at a guess I would say it has something to do with a) witches or cool.png the Old Jail?

Hot or cold?

Dunno Sonny....I only know where it is as I took the pic....no idea what is below the cover. Pretty sure someone woll get it as there'll be a few Buds that trod the same well worn path as me.

Williamsburgh housing association currently occupy the building, which is where their offices are.
