A float from a Carnival in the 1950s. The theme seems to be the important role of women in the past so we have a suffragette, a WWI nurse, a member of the WWII WRVS, a WWII housewife with Florence Nightingale and Grace Darling thrown in for good measure.

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.
