Behind Close Doors
We would love to introduce to you quite a unique feature to the website, along with Paisley Buildings at Risk this shows you the interior of some of the buildings that are in danger of being demolished or are just walked past each day. The owner Catherine Watt says the following:
“‘Behind Close Doors: Paisley’s Hidden Tenement Tiles and other artistic work’ aims to gather photos and pictures of the artistic works now hidden behind the doors of our Tenement closes as well as recollections from people who remember living in our Tenements.
While I started with the wally tiles that so many of us love, I have also started gathering photos of mosaics, stained glass windows and painted picture windows as well as wrought-iron bannisters, wooden panelling, wooden doors, cornicing, fireplaces, etc.
I also document wally closes wherever I come across them on my travels and welcome people sharing their own pictures and recollections of our Tenements. “
