1939: More Coffee Stalls? Had a chat with Miss Stewart of Drumduan on Tuesday. I wondered if any development had followed her suggestion that coffee stalls or suchlike might be established near Pittodrie Park and the greyhound track at Bridge of Dee. She is still waiting for support for her plan, which she mentioned at the annual meeting of the Shiprow Tavern as a "feeler. - She considers that so many people come in from the country to football matches that a teetotal refreshment place in the vicinity of Pittodrie would be a tremendous asset and a counter-attraction to the pubs. Miss Stewart is convener of the Church of Scotland Women's Temperance Committee in Aberdeen, hence her great interest in the subject.
