How good is your knowledge of Suffolk in Days Gone By? As most readers will be enjoying a day off today, on Boxing Day, I have created a picture quiz with photographs from my archive.

Even if you do not recognise the scene another family member from a different generation could well help, as you gather to share Boxing Day.

Most will recognise their own town or village, but a view from across the county can be more tricky.

In some cases the view has not changed a great deal, but the lack of heavy traffic in the scenes gives them a very different look.

So, whether you are alone or with a large gathering, see how many locations you can name.

To submit a letter, in less than 300 words, write to David Kindred, Days Gone By, Ipswich Star/EADT, Portman House, 120 Princes Street, Ipswich, IP1 1RS or send an e-mail.
