Pity - I rather liked the old Majestic signage!

Oh, and the 'Maison Antoinette' seems to have been painted over in the last few days, so just as well we have a photo of it here!

Spotted on Paisley Road West in front of Walmer Crescent, next to the Co-op... It was uncovered for 1 day, tops.

Here's the adjoining panel (dull day)
- and, below, getting covered up again. They had the glass in that panel uncovered for about 3 nanoseconds and I missed it.
Image

And here's what it used to look like (1935, courtesy Virtual Mitchell).........
Image

We had a neighbour notification about a planning application to turn the previously covered panels back into windows, responded pointing out that as it's in a conservation area ( ::): ) according to the City Plan the shops should be reinstating 'traditional' type fronts. After the work started some neighbours had a nosey in there when the panels inside had been pulled off. The very helpful workmen invited them in for a look, because there in all its glory was the stained glass and signage from the 1935 pic (not very photographable though because it was all still covered over on the outside).

The workmen's instructions were to smash it all out.... but they were rather sad about it. Neighbours leapt into action, got on to the conservation and planning people, net result, agreement by the people having the work done to leave it all place, boarded in again on both sides. So their new window openings end up smaller than originally intended. Apparently they weren't thrilled.

A reasonable result, I suppose (not least because I have to wonder how long lovely stained glasswork would last), but it's a long way from traditional shop fronts. I won't be patronising the shop.

As a first post in the new thread (the rest were copied in from elsewhere...) a new one to get us going.

As the original location of Delizique on Hyndland Street continues its transformation into Cafezique, this was uncovered yesterday:

I spotted this on the way to Jaconelli's the other night. I also took some snaps of Trossach St for a possible Past Present.

Nice picture myfriendstan just a little bit big. Can you reduce it so it does not mess up the board.

I used to live in the close next door. When I first knew that shop, in the 50s, it was Lillian May a ladies hairdresser whose perm lotion (or whatever) stank the close out almost ... well...permanently. It's been a number of things over the years. The cafe was a short term project by the local YWCA.
