Do you remember the Royal George pub in Ipswich in the 1970s? If so, you may be in our nostalgic photo gallery.
The popular pub was built in the 1930s, but, despite its impressive appearance, was not one of the Tolly Follies created by the Tollemache Brewery.
Reader Ken Brock, who worked for Tolly for many years, has been in touch to say that it was in fact built by the Cobbold Brewery.
Ken said: "When the Tolly Follies were being built, Cobbold and Co were also increasing their stock of public houses, building the Royal George, Racecourse and Duke of Gloucester."
Our photographer went along and met some of the regulars in 1974 - and you can spot many smiling faces in these photos.

Today, the pub in Colchester Road is one of Greene King's Flaming Grill pubs, known for its range of food.
