Museum of Cambridge Visit

2nd August 2019

A visit to the Museum of Cambridge has yielded some interesting photographs of the Lyons teashop that used to be on Petty Cury. The street has been reworked many times since the 1970s so nothing remains of the teashop now but we found a photo of it boarded up before being transformed into a Jolyons cafe in 1972.

Jolyons cafes were a later form of Lyons teashop. The Petty Cury one used to be between Van Allan clothes shop and Dolcis shoe shop. Remember those?

If anyone reading this happens to have any photos of the original teashop, we'd love to see them. Email to let me know what you have.
