History of 24 Gwydir Street

See History of Gwydir Street and Buildings in Gwydir Street.

In the 1881 Census the house was occupied by:
Walter James DOUGLAS, born around 1857 in Hinxton, Cambs, a cellarman;
his wife Alice Louisa (nee GRANT), born October 1855 in Haslingfield, Cambs;
and daughter Harriet Allice, born October 1876 in Cambridge

George Tiplady, tailor, lived in 24 Gwydir St in 1913 (see Spalding's Directory). Apparently he also lived at number 2 in 1904 and 1913. So either he owned both properties, or perhaps the 1913 duplication is a mistake!
