old paisley

Thanks to George McGrattan who donated his personal footage (this version we have created in real time rather than cinefilm, if you prefer the cinefilm version for posterity click here, which we extracted the Paisley bits, now the video starts in 1962 but that doesn’t mean when Paisley is in the camera its 1962 with Marks and Spencer being the key to the proper date… Again thanks to George’s family for this footage which is brilliant. It shows a walk from the West End of town right up to the Town Hall, the old Paisley Jail and The Thomas Coats Memorial Church.
