One feature of the Society’s 60th celebrations appeared on the Cornhill as a series of photographic panels, erected on March 10. Your editor strongly recommended the use of Tim Leggett’s excellent ‘then and now’ pairs of images for this display, which make full use of the Image Archive on Flickr (you can find the link at the bottom of the homepage: www.ipswichsociety.org.uk). Tim has a knack of really studying the original photographs of Ipswich street scenes and working out where the photographer might have originally stood. The display proved to be hugely popular with members of the public, young and old, and a great success for us.
