Gallery: David Kindred looks back at Woolworths and the other shops we loved and lost in Ipswich
With the annual Christmas dash around the shops well under way I have found photographs to remind us of some of the stores in the centre of Ipswich from our past.
Most of the pictures were taken before giant superstores opened on the edge of town the internet was beyond imagination. Black Friday and Cyber Monday sounded like something from science fiction.
Gone are names like: Corders, Cowells, Martin and Newby, J. H. Grimwade and Son, Woolworths, Croydons, Edwards and Ridleys.
