(16-17) Livingstone Commercial Temperance Hotel, Dining Rooms and Restaurant
Edward J Culyer, proprietor
19/10/1929: With the passing of Mrs Eliza Jane Mason of the Livingstone Hotel, Petty Cury, Cambridge has lost a prominent member of the restaurant business. She commenced business with a university lodging house on Market Hill which became known as ‘Masons’ and was converted into a restaurant. It was largely used by cadets and catered for the officers stationed here during the Great War. Almost the first Belgian wounded soldiers were billeted there and she acted as a sort of nursing mother to them. Her next move was to Sadd’s before she bought the Livingstone Hotel which was then only a coffee house. It is now one of the best commercial hotels in Cambridge. She also built the Rendezvous, Magrath Avenue as a skating rink in 1909. (Cam.News)

Kittridge’s tobacco shop
The front was renovated in the 40s and an elaborate carved wooden fascia was put up, embellished with carved negro heads, similar to those which appeared on 18th century tobacconist’s signs. Two of these heads are now in the Museum of Cambridge.
