More about this scene

This photograph was taken from the entrance to the former East Suffolk Hotel, now the Aldeburgh Festival Office. Outside Constance and Ward's, the ironmongers (right), carts are parked at an angle, just as cars are today. On the left a baker makes deliveries, while two girls cycle to Arthur and James Fisher's shoe shop, now Butcher's. The buildings beyond the chemists have been radically altered or demolished.

Other Memories from Aldeburgh

This little girl could be me! I spent many happy hours playing with my model boat here, while visiting my grandmother, Ruth Knowles from Fawcett Road in the town. What happy memories!

In the 60's the tower was derelict but us children could get across the very unsafe wooden bridge across the moat and explore the inside. Very dangerous with rotten floors and deep drops!
