This pole in Church Street was hit by a lorry - disrupting both local electricity and telephone services. 'Bert and Ernie' are identified on the back of the photo as two of the men. They are in front of the old cottages which stood on what is now a shrubbery and the entrance to St Gregory's school. 1950s?

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.
