Moss-side Inn Greenock Road Paisley The Inn was located just outside the Burgh Boundary of the Town of Paisley, Renfrewshire. Pubs within the town had different hours from those outwith so it was common practise for folks to get the last Bus out of town to the Moss-side to take advantage of the later open hours. The Pub was located on the perimeter of Royal Navy Airbase HMS Sanderling which became Glasgow Airport in the mid 60's. With the building of the M8 Motorway and the extension of the main runway of the airport the Pub was demolished and now lies under Junction 29 of the M8

Unusually tall signalbox with double flight of steps. Built to give view over a road bridge, perhaps?

St Mirren F.C.s former home - Westmarch - 1883-1894 After four years at Thistle Park, Saints were on the move again, this time to Westmarch. The ground was very close to Thistle Park on Greenhill Road and also near to the location of the current St Mirren Park. The first match played at Westmarch was on the 25th August 1883 when the, then, mighty Queens Park came calling and were sent home with a 2-1 defeat. Over the 11 seasons at Westmarch Saints played in 54 competitive matches, including the newly formed Scottish League Championship which started in 1890. © www.stmirren.info

A superb image showing to the top left the Hangers and Nissan huts of the then Royal Air Force 602 Squadron (City of Glasgow) Auxiliary Air Force and later,from 1943, exclusively the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm Base HMS Sanderling. The Navy left in 1963 and the airfield became Glasgow Airport replacing the old airport at Renfrew.



Greenock Road (running NW -SE)is now cut in half with both the main runway for the airport and the M8 Motorway. The M8 runs East to West in a line approximately running between the Nissan Huts to the right and the Prefab Housing (Gockston, and the runway in a SW - NE direction just to the North of the large Hangers (which still exist and house 'Loganair')



The large park with the Bandstand is St James Park, locally know as the Racecourse as it was at one time in the early 1900's used for that purpose. Interesting also to see the Fairground in the park which suggestes this photo would have been taken during the first fortnight in August - the Paisley Fair- when the town all but ground to a halt for the annual fortnights holidays.
