Ipswich: Street by Street

Carol Twinch

Ipswich – Street by Street throws a spotlight on the streets of the longest inhabited town in England, examining the origins and history of its ancient thoroughfares. Why is Silent Street so called, and what is the story behind Dogs Head Street and the town Ducking Chair?

The author has drawn on a wide range of sources to discover the events, buildings and personalities associated with individual streets and tells fascinating anecdotes of famous people, historical and sporting personalities, suffragettes and local heroes.

The text is illustrated by 200 photographs, historical and modern, plus memorabilia and old postcards and brings the evolving transformation of the waterfront right up to date.
