Do you remember having a pint at Ipswich's Sporting Farmer pub?

Punters enjoyed drinks at Ipswich's Sporting Farmer pub over the decades it was open - are you in any of these pictures from 1974?
The Princes Street pub, a favourite with Ipswich Town supporters, originally opened in December 1962, close to the old cattle market site near the junction with Portman Road.
The venue's licence had been transferred from the nearby Three Swans pub after it closed the day before.
A modernisation of the pub was carried out in 1990 and the pub was renamed the Drum and Monkey - but it closed in 2016.
The building was demolished in 2018 as Ipswich Borough Council expanded the Portman Road car park.

Archive pictures show pub-goers enjoying pints, smoking and dancing to music being played by one of the many bands to visit the venue over the years.
