No. 19: Café Crème

19 & 20 Broad Street

 

No. 19 on the right is part of the same building as No. 20 on the left, and they are jointly Grade II listed (List Entry No. 1185358). They date from about 1700, but have been remodelled.

 

This building is owned by Oxford City Council.

 

At the time of the 1772 Survey of Oxford Nos. 19 & 20 formed one house occupied by a Mrs Baggs, with its frontage measured as 7 yards exactly

 

In Jackson's Oxford Journal of 1 February 1851, John Prentice, who described himself as a general and furnishing ironmonger, smith, tinman and brazier, brush factor, oil, and colourman, announced that he had taken over this shop at 19 Broad Street, and that as well as retail sales he undertook gas fitting and bell-hanging, and that there was also a register Oxford for servants here. The 1851 census two months later shows him living here with his wife and two grown-up daughters.

In 1861 John Piper, a tailor and hosier, was in this building with his wife and three children.

In 1881 No. 19 was occupied by the tobacconist here, George E. Dorrell, with his wife and baby daughter and a 13-year-old servant.
