Not the most inspiring of places, but it's quite remarkable because of how quickly it got trashed. It closed in june that year, and by ocotber it was royally trashed. It's now been flattened and the land is still for sale.
The weird thing about this place was remembering it from when I was a kid, was sad seeing it so trashed.

Built in 1896 by TG Abercrombie
The Drill Hall was originally opened at the western end of the High Street as the headquarters of the Renfrewshire Militia in 1865. Eventually a reorganisation of the militia reformed them as a one of the volunteer battalions of the Argyll and Surtherland Highlanders. The old premises became inadequate and so the public subscription was raised, and the local architect T.G Abercrombie produced the Scots Baronial style building we see today. There where two enormous cannons that stood guarding the doors. These were trophies brought back from the Crimean, which seem to have disappeared during one of the drives to salvage scrap metal during the war.
