Book Description

This book, first published in 2000, draws on the great wealth of associations of street-names in Cambridge. It is not a dictionary, but it provides a fascinating series of explanatory entries on historical periods and topics - and on a wide variety of notable and sometimes curious characters who lived in or often visited Cambridge.

Format: Paperback
The chances are that if you are reading this, you're interested in little snippets of Cambridge history. This book covers Cambridge street history right up until the 90's, you can tell this has been written by people who really know Cambridge.

You can look individual streets up in the index, or read through by era, topic, or area. Brilliant. It's a shame I couldn't find it to buy in Cambridge, but Amazon came through in the end. There are references littered through the pages, so you know where to look for more information, should you want it.

Every town & city should have one of these books!

A great book for research,flicking through or just curious where,what,who or why the history behind your street or who it came from.
Once you start to read this book or begin to flick through it you can't put it down.If your from Cambridge then you start to think of all the street names and look them up to find out the reason the roads are named as they are...interesting and informative and good for possible pub quizes...like where did Dick Turpin hide? What is the only street name in Cambridge that has connections with prehistoric times? Do you know the only two places named in connection with the American war of independance in 1775?
Lots to read,lots to learn,lots to recommend.
