The Scales Hotel… to the Portland Arms

img082The Scales Hotel, Cambridge … some time before 1920, which was rebuilt as the Portland Arms Hotel in the 1920’s

In order to keep the  license, when the rebuilding was taking place, one half was knocked down and my grandfather and the family lived in the other half, keeping the pub open while the rebuilding took place; when the new half was finished, they moved in and the old remaining half was knocked down and then rebuilt to make the complete pub.
