As our journey nears the end of the 70’s we come to 1979 and bring you these images.

In this weeks trip down memory lane we found images of jazz musician Kenny Ball at the Corn Exchange, the Felixstowe WI morning market and also in Felixstowe a sponsored weigh-in in support of Christian Aid. Along with these we also found pictures of pickets outside the unemployment office in Ipswich, a cheque presentation from the Murrayside club and the Ipswich Sea Angling Association dinner and presentations.

Are you in any of these pictures? Drop us a line.
