Staying in renfrew I know a few at mirren fans and there certain they received floodlights from us for the start of the 1959 season 

it was those floodlights at love street that caused problems at renfrew airport 

not only the height but the glare and the lights to guide the pilot .

the aproach to renfrew airport was over ibrox,when glasgow opened the 60,s the flight path in was over the river.out was over barrhead

 

Yeah, that's why they built the Broomloan Flats and filled it with taigs, so the pilot would know to swerve round and take the correct flight path, if they got it wrong especially the older ones who were in the habit of flying over Ibrox, which was a listed building and therefore more important than the Broomloan flats.  Please don't let the facts interfere with the sensible reasons I've given above.

Aye. There was a brief, unsuccessful campaign to save it.

Alas, the exact same view of that point now...
