In 1911, Anacieto Sylvester Confectioner/Hawker born in Lucca, Italy was at this address. He brought his wife Rosetta and 5 children to Cambridge from Kings Lynn. I don’t know if he was a Publican, perhaps this is when the house stopped being a pub. He had a boarder by the name of Robert Edward Collins, also from Kings Lynn, who was a hairdresser by trade. I know that it was a hairdressers when my father bought the place. *
