Old TA Hall

Postby Ship called Dignity » Sat Jan 14, 2006 1:02 pm

Just thought I would carry on from last week's REX cinema thread with a picture of the site of the former TA Hall in St John Street/Argyle Street. Took this picture today.

The houses now replace the former TA Hall which was used for a number of activities over the years but fell into dis-repair. (there is now a new TA Hall at Hazelburn) I used to go to the Army Cadets there when I was young - or was it the Sea Cadets :shock:. Other things included the Bird Show being held there etc. Once again, I am sure there are plenty of people out there were far superior knowledge and memories than me of the hall. I'm just taking an interest in this all now! :wink:

Anyone got an old photo of the TA Hall?

Sorry no photos of the hall but I recently came across the old hardwood floor of the hall being laid in a renovated cottage in Glen Lonan outside Oban. Really looked first class too!
