Buttercup Dairy Company - 183–185 Station Road, Cardenden
by Bill Scott
I am nearly finished a book on the Buttercup Dairy Company and am trying to find out a bit more about the shop, which used to be at 183-185 Station Road. As I understand it, the old Buttercup mural is still there in what is now the post office.
The Buttercup was founded in 1904 by Andrew Ewing who previously had a shop under his own name in nearby Kirkcaldy. At its peak in the late 1920's the Buttercup had 250 shops in Scotland and the north of England. The Cardenden shop was probably one of the first.
Does anybody know anything about or possibly someone who worked there?
