ROADS AND STREETS IN OLD PLYMOUTH

NOTTE STREET

In old Plymouth (that is pre-1941) Notte Street was a direct contination of Woolster Street that used to run from the bottom of Buckwell Street westwards to Princess Square.  It included Princess Place on the northern side.

In 1935 number 15 Notte Street, on the corner with Hoe Street, was the grocer's shop of Miss Kate Tenney.
The cafe next door at number 16, known as Stella's Snack bar, was operated by Mr Wilfrid Hope in 1953.
City of Plymouth Museum and Art Gallery, 1953.

Kate's father, Mr Edwin Orlando Tenney (1827-1915), a Cornishman by birth, was in business here in 1901.  He died in 1915 at the great age of 86 years.  Miss Kate Tenney (1857-1939), still unmarried, died on October 3rd 1939 at the equally grand age of 82 years.

To the right of this picture was Zion Street.  The area between there and Windsor Lane was occupied by the post-war home of the Navy, Army and Air Force Institute (NAAFI).
