There is a well or water borehole at the end of Gwydir Street - I presume either for Dale's Brewery or Bath House. There is a similar well/bore hole in Sturton Street, where Linton House now is. There used to be a brewery here. The Gault areas are clay, used for the original Cambridge bricks.
This is before the railway was built. You can see Mill Road, Covent Garden, East Road and a few houses off East Road. Some of the Kite area is starting to get built up. Also note the Rope Walk. Some people may remember Simpers, selling rope, in roughly the same area, before it moved. Gwydir Street apparently used to be a field boundary.
Gwydir Street still not built. There is a workhouse now on Mill Road. This has become Ditchburn Place (via the Maternity Hospital).
The railway has arrived, and the whole area now built.
