Holland's Dairy at No. 22 Addenbrooke Street

On the 1911 Census at No. 22 Addenbrooke Street we find William Holland, aged 50, a carter, with his second wife of 6 years, Florence aged 29. With them are William’s 3 sons and a daughter from his first marriage aged 19, 14, 16 and 12; and the 3 children of his marriage to Florence aged 5, 2 and 2 months, one child from this marriage having been lost. The occupation of the 14 year old Joseph Holland was given as Milk Seller. No.22 Addenbrooke Street must have been built between 1903 when it did not appear on the OS map, and 1911.

On the 1939 OS map Holland's house can be seen as a pair of semi- detached 2 up/2 down houses standing alone on the right hand side of the road, specially built for dairying, with a wide entrance in between and outbuildings which included cowsheds at the bottom of the plot.
