Cherry's Corner

“Cherry’s Corner”, the corner of Arbury Road and Milton Road, was named after Ernest Cherry’s grocer’s shop and is pictured here c. late 1920s. The shop's slogan at that time was "Ripe For Value".

Cherry’s is not as well known as Mitcham’s Corner, but it was a postal address for a few years after a new row of shops was built in Arbury Road in the early 1930s.


An advertisement from the "Cambridge Daily News", 1937 - a relic of the days when Cherry's Corner was a postal address.
