These images are the ‘Fragments’ of the title, small reminders of what was once a thriving industrial dockland environment. Although relatively new to Ipswich there are parallels in my home town of Swansea – once the largest port in the UK Copperopolis. The change from a working port to a leisure based industry is fraught with both success and failure, especially in an economic recession.
These images show reminders of the rail network that was so important to the efficient operation of the Docks, moving goods in and out.
Ipswich has also seen and experienced these ups and downs and will eventually succeed.
