Much of the information in this atlas comes from Period Piece, A Cambridge Childhood by Gwen Raverat and A House by the River by Margaret Keynes (MK), Raverat’s sister who wrote a history of Newnham Grange for Darwin College. I have been helped by the librarians in the Cambridgeshire History section of the Cambridge Central Library and have had helpful conversations at the Folk Museum and with Alan Brigham who gives guided tours of Cambridge – Town not Gown. My thanks to the gentlemen at Trinity who facilitated my viewing of Monte Cobbeo in the Fellow’s Garden, and to a lovely Porter at St Catherine’s who talked with me about the Bull Hotel.
I would most especially like to thank Kate, Danielle, Sophia and Denise at Darwin College who were kind enough to talk with me and allow me generous access to the building and grounds.
Finally thanks to Robert (A:L:L) for introducing me to Darwin College, and to Simon for invaluable technical support.
The drawings of Rev. Parkinson’s brougham, Mr Mott’s cows, Jolley’s, and Flack’s are taken from archival photographs found at the Central Library. The historic maps I used came from Central Library and on-line sources; I have tried to give a correct designation for each. All other maps, diagrams and drawings are mine.
