There are some sights in Ipswich that remain unchanged for hundreds of year - but other buildings have changed completely, or even disappeared since the 1950s and 60s, as David Kindred has been discovering.

He said: “I have visited a few sites in the Star’s area to see how they have changed from photographs taken decades ago.

“Several of the photographs were taken by enthusiastic amateur photographer Jack Keen of Wallace Road, who enjoyed recording the changes to Ipswich mostly in the 1950s and 60s.

“Most have changed almost beyond recognition many in the span of a lifetime.”

See the changes for yourself in our gallery.
