The Trafalgar. It is a pub that will hold fond memories for many - but have we pictured you in our gallery?

Built in the 1800s, the building once stood proudly in Spring Road and was a popular local pub for those living or working on the outskirts of Ipswich town centre.

The pub closed it doors to the public for the final time in the early 2000s and was turned into a residential dwelling, but in its hey day was owned by Suffolk brewers Tolly Cobbold.

The boozer had also known for its wider-than-average range of ales, which would attract punters from across the county.

These pictures, taken at the pub in 1974, show just how popular it was.
