Hi everyone,

You may have noticed that this blog has been relatively quiet the past few months. The reason for the lack of posts is that I have been working hard in my free time to put together my first ever local history book about Ipswich.

The book is a series of ninety photographic comparisons that contrasts Victorian and Edwardian Ipswich with the modern town. If you are interested you can order it from the publishers directly from here:

I am happy to announce that Ipswich Through Time will be available from 15th February 2015. I am also having a book launch at the Ipswich branch of Waterstones on 7th March at 1pm – please come along if you can make it!

I hope to get back to writing some more ipswichhistory blog posts soon

Best wishes,

  1. Hello, Caleb, you might remember that we met when you were taking some photos across the Gipping from Ranelagh Road? I hadn’t forgotten about you, and am so pleased that your book is coming out – is there any way of getting a signed copy before 14th Feb, please? Thanks and very best wishes, Penny Pendlebury

    1. Hi Penny,

      Yes, I do remember, it’s great to hear from you. Unfortunately the book is not being released until the 15th of February – although if you pre-order on Amazon, it might get to you before that. I don’t even have any copies yet. Of course I would be happy to sign it for you. 🙂

      1. Hi Caleb, that’s lovely, thanks – yes, I will try Amazon. Sadly John and I are not together any more, but I had still been hoping to buy it for him. My daughter and I are still in Ranelagh Road at the moment – John owns two houses in the terrace, so we never actually lived together. I will be in touch! X
