5-6 Market Street

History of 5 - 6 Market Street

7/12/1934: Barratt shoes have just opened their 126th branch at 6 Market Street Cambridge. When you consider that ten years ago they had fewer than 20 you must allow that they’d progressed. Some of the lines are stocked in no fewer than fifty alternative fittings. They are made in Barratt’s own factory and sold only through their branches. From start to finish every detail is under their control and there are no middleman’s profits. (Cam.News)
