Days Gone By: A view from the skies of Ipswich town centre and beyond
In June 1992, East Anglian Daily Times and Evening Star staff photographer Owen Hines flew from Ipswich Airport to capture the Ipswich area from the air.
Many changes have taken place since his flight 26 years ago and I feature some this week.
The Ipswich Dock area has now become a mostly residential and leisure area.
The west bank has expanded and the airport has closed.
Several areas of land have seen housing developments.
You may also want to watch:
Reavell’s engineering works on Ranelagh Road has now been replaced, mostly with flats, and the retail area, close to the Copdock Mill interchange, has expanded.
