Hertford Hall, Cambridge Ice Cream Co.

History of hertford Hall

1913 not listed

In 2022 ACB emailed:

My grandfather was Jack Pointer who ran the Cambridge Ice Cream Company out of Hertford Hall on Hertford St. My mum remembers going there on her way home from school in the mid-1950s, and later did the books there. She thinks the company had moved from the Kinema on Mill Road to Hertford Road a few years before but possibly after WWII e.g. by about 1947.

Cambridge Ice Cream Co sold up.

In 1981 (CWN 9 Apr)reported that a copy of the sale catalogue is in the Cambridgeshire Collection. It also said that some people thought the site was a “hush-hush” factory during the last war.
