In the latest Days Gone By series, David Kindred takes a walk down memory lane visiting two more of Ipswich’s lost public houses.
Photographs taken in the 1970s by East Anglian Daily Times and Evening Star photographer, Jerry Turner, capture how popular an evening at “The Local” was around 40 years ago.
The Haven Hotel, Felixstowe Road, Ipswich, was built in 1928 and was renamed the Crown in 2009. It closed in October 2011.
The Seahorse at the corner of College Street and Foundation Street closed in the late 1970s and was demolished in 1980.
Also featured are reader’s memories prompted by recent Days Gone By features.
