History of 2 Kingston Street

1913: vacant


Pte Sidney Hutchinson of the Lancashire Fusiliers was killed in action on 28.9.1918. He had previously worked for G Holt at 43 Trumpington Street


John Brooks (1863-1938) and Susan Brooks (1865-1937) and their family of seven children lived here and ran a fish and chip shop on the ground floor for many years.

They are listed in this location from 1922 – 1937, and the house is listed as empty from 1937-38 (Spalding’s Directories – Vol. 1922-23, 1924-25, 1927-37, Cambridge Reference Library). This was their second fish and chip shop. Their first was at 100 Mill Road.
