Arranged by the Ipswich society, the photo cubes are displaying pictures of Ipswich in days gone by, compared with the present day.

Tim Leggett from the Ipswich Society said they have been 'delighted' with the interest so far and encouraging as many people as possible to look at the exhibition before it finishes on March 23.

Mr Leggett, who has personally collected hundreds of images for the display said: ' Most of the old images came from the Ipswich Society image archive and we have to thank David Kindred, the Ipswich Maritime Trust, Archant and others for the 'before' images we have used.'
