Tea rooms were invented in Glasgow. Catering for the needs of both men and women, they became a distinctive and much loved feature of the city's business and social life.
The legendary Miss Cranston brought them international fame through her patronage of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, who designed for her with dazzling inventiveness over two decades. She brought avant garde design to a wide public, and they loved it.
After the First World War came another age of tea rooms, continuing their fine traditions. This part of the book will stir nostalgic memories of convenience, good value and pleasantness, of superb baking and couthy Glasgow waitresses.
