Old Postcards of the River Gipping and its surroundings

The second group of 32 cards collected by John Jarman and provided by him to display on our website.

This group includes some from two areas that were very difficult to identify. The first were from the Chantry area of Ipswich between Bramford and Boss Hall. The map below makes it clearer.

The second was the only picture we have ever seen of Sharmford Lock. This area is well off the beaten track and a photographer would have to go out his way to get this picture. Note the strange shape of the balance beams on the lock.
