Days Gone By: Memories from Arboretum pub on a night in 1974
PUBLISHED: 12:00 30 June 2018
It was the year of the Rumble in the Jungle, two General Elections and the three-day week - here we look back at photos from 1974.
These pictures were taken at the Arboretum pub in Ipswich.
Opened in the Victorian era, the pub is situated in High Street – its name derives from the nearby arboretum (tree garden) in Christchurch Park. The building was previously home to the Arboretum Hotel and later the Arboretum Inn.
The pub was closed for a while in late 2008, and was renamed in 2016 as Arbor House.
Now the venue, which is close to Ipswich Museum, offers a traditional pub feel with contemporary British food.
What do you remember about 1974? Were you a regular at The Arboretum or do you have memories of the three-day week and the political situation in the UK?
We would love to hear your memories of this time.
