: CAMBRIDGE DAY BY DAY Mishap to Workmen. – On Monday an accident befell two men, named Arthur Collins, carpenter, of 30, Thoday street, and Albert Gibbs, painter, 111, Gwydir-street, both in the employ of Messrs Thoday and Co., builders, of Hills-road. It appears that they were moving a large sheet of plate glass, about 10ft. by 8ft. from the window of Messrs Barrett and Son, of Market hill, when the lower part of the pane, which was cracked, fell on to the footpath, knocking both the men down. Collins received a severe cut on the left arm, while Gibbs had his arm and his little finger badly cut. Both men were taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital by P.C. Savidge where they were examined and the wounds dressed by the assistant house surgeon.
