TM1543 : Princes Street

taken 35 years ago, near to Ipswich, Suffolk, Great Britain

Princes Street
Princes Street
Borough of Ipswich No.118, a Bristol RE, travels along Princes Street towards Ipswich station. This area has seen significant redevelopment since this photo was taken. The closest building - Paul's Maltings remains, but the more modern building beyond has been demolished as the road layout was changed. Commercial road now crosses Princes Street and the road in the foreground acts as a sliproad. Behind the bus, there is now a fire station. Further down the road, the office building with the clock, which stands on the corner of Portman Road still exists, but the adjacent building, once the offices of John player tobacco, has been converted to housing. Above the bus is one of the floodlights at Portman Road, Ipswich FC's ground. These observations made by careful study of Google maps and information from local resident and amateur historian Stu List.
