Do you remember the Eastern Union Railway pub?
PUBLISHED: 06:30 01 August 2018
Ipswich’s first rail line was the Eastern Union Railway and it was an extension of the Eastern Counties Railway from London to Colchester.
The first railway station in Ipswich was in Croft Street and later became the site of the engine shed.
It was in Croft Street that the EUR pub - named after the railway line - opened its doors in the 1850s.
The pub stood proudly in the town for many years and these photos are from 1975, showing a busy night at the pub.
The EUR closed in 1993 but reopened briefly a year later.
The pub underwent a refurbishment and reopened as Crofts in 1996 but the name change did not last long and the following year the name reverted to the EUR.
Time was called on the pub in 2005.
Were you a regular punter at the pub in the 1970s? Can you spot yourself or anyone you know in these pictures from our archives?
