7/8/1906: Cambridge fire brigade undoubtedly saved a portion of King’s Parade, St Edward’s Passage and Peas Hill from destruction by fire. There are numerous old houses, warehouses, sheds and outhouses of all descriptions, many constructed chiefly of wood. It broke out at Mons Buol’s bakery, 17 Kings Parade; the bakehouse was gutted and hundreds of pounds of chocolate, almonds and sugar damaged. (Cam.News)
