Not Glasgow in the 70s - 1. PAISLEY

Finger duly extracted, the first in an occasional series.

I was getting bored with tramping the streets of Glasgow (lamentable lack of dedication, I know, but I had no idea that anyone would ever take any interest in what I was producing) and, lacking any personal transport, began going by train or SMT bus to pastures new. I only ever shot a few random frames here and there, nowhere covered in any depth, and with an misguided bias towards historic buildings, castles and churches instead of streets and tenements.

So, Wednesday 24th July 1974, and a train to Gilmour St for a wander round with the trusty Yashica. I havenít wielded a camera in Paisley before or since, so this is all there is, however unsatisfactory (and it is).

West Brae. I havenít found a map which shows a church here. The 1868 town plan doesnít, but as the architecture looks very late Victorian, 1890s Iíd say, it wouldnít.

Thanks, guys. There's more to come, eventually, but it's all sketchier than an art class.
