Festival of Ideas: Miss Jebb revisits Mill Road
Thursday, 10 October, 2019 , 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
In 1900 Eglantyne Jebb, who would late found ‘Save the Children’ came to live in Cambridge. In 1906 she published ‘Cambridge – A Brief Study in Social Questions’. In the opening chapter she describes Mill Road. What would she think of it today? Who might she have met and what changes would she have seen if she had revisited the road in the last 119 years.
The Mill Road History Society bring Miss Jebb back to life and introduces her to the characters and events of Mill Road’s past. Today we think it as vibrant, multicultural and quirky. Would Miss Jebb agree?
