Notes: RENFREW—The police committee of the county of Renfrew have given instructions to Mr. Davidson, architect, Paisley, to except estimates for, and proceed with the erection of police-station buildings at Bridge of Weir and Newton Mearns; these being the first two of a number of similar buildings they propose to erect throughout the county. Previous to estimates being taken the plans were submitted to the Home Secretary and approved of. The outside of the buildings are in the Scotch style. Owing to the reduced value of labour and materials the estimates given in are rather under the probable cost stated by the architect when the plans were submitted. [Building News 18 July 1879 p80]
