  • I agree about the number of vehicles and firefighters but 9 pm to 9.35 pm is not 12 hours.

  • Did it really take 12 and 12 hours to release the woman?

Many of the houses in Cromwell Street, Ipswich were due for demolition when this photograph was taken in the mid 1960s. They were replaced with a dual carriageway road, which came to an abrupt end at St Nicholas Street. There was originally a plan to take the road through to the Fore Street area of the town. Franciscan Way was later joined with Greyfriars Road and the remaining part of Franciscan Way converted into Cromwell Square car park.
