Yes and it originally all joined up with the river. There were lots of stewponds that the monks kept a stock of fish
in for use at St Augustins priory in that area. They are shown on really old maps I believe.

Using the bottom option is quite a good tool. I have put it on here many times but its always good to refresh it.

I believe he did but moved to George street or Birchwood street later on. Not sure about that and I do not see his daughter around anymore to ask her.
I think our member Rospaul may know a bit more.

:smt017 ……. I can recall the Dawson family living at the far-end of Sir Lewis St, I can't remember the family in George St or Birchwood St. Yes he did have a brother Alan who worked for the Co-Op and moved to Cambridge.

Think I may have misled you RP. Peters family did not move, but he did when he got married. Sorry for the confusion.

I didn't know Peter had died. We saw him on Cambridge Mkt. years ago selling wet fish. There must be several on that photo that I grew up with but wouldn't recognise.
I met Alan again at one of our CO OP dues he was the manager of the Sawston branch.
That last request I answered [ don't think they've been back ] it was there father that married Lilian nee Hunter who had a green grocers opposite St James Park. She married 3 times.

When I was crane driving in Cambridge I used to walk down to the market and get dome welks or shrimps from Peter at dinnertime.
I'm sure I put a picture of Peter taken outside the Tilden Smith the day he took it over in 1961. He married Sandra Atkinson.
. Just got to remember which thread as cannot find it. :? I am sure I mentioned somewhere on here that he had died also.
