The face of Ipswich has changed a considerable amount over the years. 

From Cornhill to Revolution and Dog's Head Street, the town has seen numerous businesses come and go..

Allow yourself a trip down memory lane and revisit how these areas once looked.

Sailmakers Shopping Centre 

Made with Flourish

One of Ipswich's most prominent shopping centres has undergone several changes, as shown by images on Google Maps.

Formerly known as Tower Ramparts, images from over a decade ago showing the previous branding lining Tavern Street. 

The centre became Sailmakers in 2015 after a £4million transformation project.

Westgate Street/Primark 

The much-loved Primark store has undergone both an expansion and facelift in recent years. 

Pictures show the former GAP store still operating in Westgate Street in 2009, before the clothing giant extended into the shop in 2016.

Google Maps images show how Ipswich's much-loved market and Cornhill once used to look. 

In 2009, there was not a space among the stalls as customers made their way through the market. 

Latest pictures show how the area has been transformed, with a noticeable difference being the removal of the trees at the Tavern Street end of the Cornhill.

Dog's Head Street

A look down Dog's Head Street offers a true blast from the past. 

The earliest images available show the former Pals nightclub still in situ in Ipswich town centre. 

However, change was not far away, as the site soon became Revolution in 2011.
