Paisley Scotland Architecture Tour

Monday, June 23, 2008

This evening I am posting some images of interesting architecture in Paisley, near Glasgow.

Here is a view of the Coats Observatory which dates from 1883; a gift from Thomas Coats, a philanthropist who controlled thread-making factories in the locality.


Oakshaw Trinity Church which dates from 1750.


The Town Hall, finaced by textile magnate George A Clark and his family 1870s.

Art Deco architecture in Causeyside street. This is dated 1931.




The former Co-operative building. Classic late Victorian.



A tiled entry to the Co-op building.





Paisley Abbey, whose origins date to the 12th century.




Overall, there is a wide diversity of architecture to intrigue the vistor.
