Cults Smiddy
Cults Smiddy stood on the north side of the North Deeside Road, at the bend near the Cults Hotel, where the original centre of this village was. For a long time, the blacksmith was Andrew Davidson, who was also the coal merchant and postmaster. He died in 1906. The gable end at the left side of the photo belonged to Smiddy Cottage, where the Post Office was until 1901. The smiddy was demolished in the 1930s and the house served as the office block for Thomson's Garage which opened in the 1920s. The whole site was later occupied by the complex of buildings forming the Village Garage, which too has been demolished for housing.
