Views of Paisley available to buy now in 2013 Calendar
Renfrewshire Arts & Museums are delighted to announce that the new calendar, ‘A Tale of Two Decades’, is now on sale.
This fascinating calendar showcases a selection of nostalgic photographs of Paisley, dating from 1960 to 1979. Featuring well-known locations such as the Town Hall, Paisley Abbey and The Watermill Hotel, this year’s calendar is sure to evoke memories for locals who lived in the town during or around that period.
Each of the photographs originate from the archive collection held at Paisley Museum. This collection comprises of over 20,000 historical images dating from the 1850’s up to the present day and features pictures relating to Paisley and other parts of Renfrewshire.
Earlier in the year, when preparations for the 2013 calendar first began, Renfrewshire Arts and Museums enlisted the help of their Facebook followers to help shortlist the huge selection of pictures we had to choose from. As a result, the image of the Christmas Lights over the River Cart from 1979 emerged as the clear favourite and the perfect choice for the front cover of the calendar.
The archive collections are available to view in either Paisley Museum or Paisley Central Library. Copies of images from the historical photographic collection are available on request. A range of postcards and prints are also available to buy from the Museum shop.
‘A Tale of Two Decades’ is available to buy from Paisley Museum and Paisley Arts Centre now, priced £7.99. www.renfrewshire.gov.uk
