Gun to Guns on Gun Green


Boer War Gun at Gun Green

A lovely bit of local history detail that Alan Brigham dug up from Mike Petty after Alan visited my flickr set of Old Cambridge postcards. (The Boer war ended in 1902)

Its such a great pity that all the newspapers archives are not online and fully indexed as Google offered to do for free.

Many thanks also to  Charles Challess of Tenison Avenue for his  letter to the editor, now published for all the world to see.

I’m sure Alan will be incorporating Tenison Road into one of his local walks on local history in the near future.
