Looks as if Clanford the Ford dealers ( later Peoples, then Arnold Clark) were in Lonend even back then...

Alex, looks as if your photo was taken from one of the upper stories of the Anchor Mill, now converted to private flats. The 'rapids' are actually known as  'The Hammills' The 'Old Mill' is now the Watermill Hotel.

Len, is that not Bridge St. instead of Lonend that we are looking at?

Here is a photo looking in the opposite direction from a later bridge below the Hammills (Watermill hotel to the right):

You're quite right, my mistake. That garage will be where Budget Tyres are now then?

Cheers Alex. Here's a different angle on it, but my sister won't thank me for it!

In this view you can see the East lodge house and some more of Glasgow Road. In the distance is Bathgo Hill, part of Ralston Golf Course:-

Luxury flats to replace fire-hit historic building




THE fire-ravaged site of one of Paisley's most historic buildings is to be
turned into luxury flats.


The former Halftime School in Maxwellton Street has lain derelict for 10 years
after it was destroyed in a massive blaze.

It was operating as the Institute nightclub when it was gutted in a fire in
July 1997 and suffered further damage a year later in severe storms.

The building was hailed as one of Scotland's best designed schools when it
opened in 1886 but only the main entrance remains intact.

Developers are planning to shore up its remains and build 40 flats behind the
B-listed facade.

Neige Developments has secured planning permission for 10 two-bedroom and 30
one-bedroom flats to be build over three storeys.

A report before Renfrewshire's planning board said: "The history of the site
has been lengthy.

"The objective had been to seek a full restoration of the building for residential
use but the applicant has advised such a project would not viable.

"The development is acceptable and it would ensure the front facade of this
important listed building is restored."

The Halftime School was commissioned by the Coats family to educate child mill
workers. Female workers would attend the school and work in the mills on alternate
days.

The Institute nightclub sustained more than 750,000 of damage in the 1997 blaze.
