MISS CRANSTON was born in George Square, and is a daughter of the late George Cranston, long identified with the Crow Hotel, which stood on the site of the present Merchants' House. After the removal of this old landmark Miss Cranston mapped out a business career for herself, and became one of the pioneers of the tea-room movement which forms so prominent a feature of Glasgow life, and has since extended to many other cities.
    The Lunch and Tea Rooms with which her name is identified are well known to all Glasgow citizens, and possess interesting and artistic features of more than local repute. Many of the younger generation remember with pleasure her Tea-house and Tea-terrace at the Glasgow Exhibition of 1901.
