History of Green Street Cambridge

This was nearly all rebuilt 1820-1850 with plain brick houses on both sides. There are several original shop fronts.

1959 Royal Commission on Historical Monuments Survey of  Cambridge sates that:

Houses from end to end of the street, excepting no.10 are nearly all part of a single rebuilding scheme probably of the second quarter of the 19th cent. Nos. 8 and 9 which were older houses, have been largely, and nos. 14 to 20, 22 and 24, entirely, rebuilt since.
