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

Recommended Posts


Image 126 was originally the Paisley Grammar School Penilee Sports Pavillion. Penilee Road. A Listed. Art Deco. Constructed in 1937. Architect H Cook.

Now the Ralston Community Sports Centre.

I just love this building but had been totally unaware of it until recently. Not been inside but from the outside its like going back in time. Beautiful building.

(And yes, it is in Paisley!).

I did the hurdles for Camphill at a County schools meeting, there.

Fourth.

Of four.

I'd never seen a hurdle until that night. Just had to complete the 100 yards for the school to get 1 point.

Ellen McCubbin won shedloads more points than me.

She was sporting and nice. :)

How did you get in that team then? Were the rest of us injured?

First time I saw hurdles was at a BB event and I thought I'd try a sneaky warm up. But I jumped over the hurdle the wrong way ie the supporting feet thingies were pointing towards me. I hit the bloody thing and went down like a ton of bricks. The hurdle didn't move an inch. I've always been a stupid bugger.

Ellen McCubbin was a dynamo. Just a wee lassie but greased lightening and she was lovely. Wonder what became of her?

I was entered at the last minute for a hurdles event for Camphill at some inter-schools thing at Seedhill. I had never even seen a hurdle before and received 2 mins training. Think I was last :) .

If the question was 'Wid ye huv?' then I wid've. If she was playing hard to get, you'd never catch her. Back then. Don't know about now. Bluto is too much of a gent to spill the beans. If there's any to be spilt.

This is reminiscent of the Italianate style of the Town hall and bridge. But it looks fairly domestic. The architect W H Lynn was one of the big boys and I don't think he did anything else in Paisley, (no doubt Sonny will put me right here), I'm going to stick with the town hall and this the south side door?

PICTURE 127 is Stanely House, off Stanely Crescent at Stanely Dam. B Listed. Villa built in the Late 1800s. And that is all I can find out about it! If anyone has any more information about its history then please share :)

Sonny I'm sure this was being used by an American religious group

Right oh So looks like a blond sandstone building domestic scale, built late 1800's to early 1900's, Art Nouveau / Scottish barronial touches, probably not Abercrombie but could be Mclennon

Think I need to lodge an appeal if not I'll get my coats
