Paisley Town Hall
Paisley's magnificent town hall was officially opened on 30th January 1882. The streets were decorated in celebration, and 12,000 people marched through them,In the evening, a grand "conversazione", or gathering, was held for invited guests. Fireworks were fired from the town's High Church, and the crowd marvelled at the new electric lights in front of the hall.

The hall was designed by Belfast architect W H Lynn. The building features two temple fronts - Corinthian to the east and Ionic to the north. Facing the river, the facade has a cantilevered balcony looking towards the town centre. It features two towers, the taller with four clock faces and an octagonal belfry. Sculptured figures around the clock represent the four seasons.

The spacious interior included a main hall with balcony, designed to seat 2,000 and furnished with a grand organ which has since been removed. The Loggia suite with its vaulted ceiling was originally called the "Promenade", and was exclusively for the town's upper classes.
