Sudbury's greeting to the troops. Christmas 1915. Inside the Rev.J.J.Kones tells the soldier that he is 'one of hundreds of whom we are so proud and for whose safe return we long and pray.' He also hoped 'that the year would not close before you have been welcomed home by those who constantly think of and pray for you.'

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.
