About the memorial: Mission building. Designed by Malcolm Stark and Rowntree on the corner of Maryhill Road and Ruchill Street this ‘C’ listed building was built between 1892-99. Now a pub, it was created as a Mission to the Garrison of the nearby barracks (see GSH above the door) by Alice Osborne and offered facilities such as a tearoom and quiet room. Miss Williamina Davidson O.B.E. worked at the home as an honorary lady superintendent for 24 years until 1918 and helped raise an endowment of £10,000 to fund it’s operation. Her charitable worked continued with the establishment of further homes at both Redford Barracks in Edinburgh and the training camps in Barry and Buddon near Dundee. Her brother, Brigadier General William L. Davidson C.B. Royal Horse Artillery, had served in the army since the Zulu war of 1879 until his death in France in 1915. Framptons [the current, December 2020] occupants is a bar and entertainment venue
