TOWERED ENTRANCE OF ST. JOHN'S IN A QUAINT CAMBRIDGE STREET

TOWERED ENTRANCE OF ST. JOHN'S IN A QUAINT CAMBRIDGE STREET

No view could be more typical of Cambridge than this one: the narrow, curved street, the mellow bricks of the college and the multitude of bicycles that always crowd the gateways in term time. This street, which is a continuation of Trinity Street is here called St. John's Street and its narrow winding way is one of the chief thoroughfares of the town. St. John's was founded by Lady Margaret Beaufort just after the death of her son. Henry VII, in 1509 She converted an ancient Hospital of St. John into the present college.
