What's a "pintstop" or "pintstowp"?

Stupid questions are how I got smart.

I know a man, his name is Lang
and he has a neon sign
and Mr Lang is very old
so they call it old Lang's sign

Sorry, that reminded me of an old Alan Sherman limerick. Don't know what a pintstop is though. Could it be something like a doorstop, only wetter?

Probably a "Pint-Stoup"; A vessel for holding a Scots pint (about 3 imperial pints.)

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary.

And do you 'spose that eventually deteriorated into "pit stop" not just as in car racing, but also as an euphemism for going to the john or stopping in for sustenance?
