Downing Street north east side (MoC 15/53/49)

Cambridge & County Liberal Club, Downing Street

History of North East side Downing Street

This picture shows the north east end of Downing Street probably circa 1900.

3/11/1934: The Cambridge Social Club, all that survived of the old Liberal Club in Downing Street, has been wound up. It moved to Market Passage and for the last five years old party labels have gone by the board. Each year it has been difficult making ends meet but happily the club finished up free from debt. The Ranjitsinhji Billiards Bowl has been offered to the Central Conservative Club and the portrait of its donor to the Hobbs’ Pavilion. (Cam.News)
