History of 19 Sussex Street


F W Talbot funded The Cambridge Almanack. It was issued annually until 1881 when the title changed to the Cambridge Almanack and Diary.

Talbot had also printed broadside ballads for several years. One sheet dated 1835 contained ‘The Literary Dustman’ and ‘The Soldier who died for his King.’ Many more are contained in the Madden Collection.
