An extremely early image of the Georgian house that was pulled down in 1871 to make way for the present Belle Vue. It features a gardener with a wheelbarrow, a lady in a tight-waisted crinoline and two(?) more ladies seated in the distance. The image is damaged and very faded but then it is about 150 years old!

The market town of Sudbury, on the borders of Suffolk and Essex, has a long and fascinating history. Much of the way of life in the town since the invention of photography has been caught on camera. The Sudbury Museum Trust has developed this website to show and provide information on a selection of these photographs.
