11 Curve St

grid reference TM 171 444

The Little Crown & Anchor is also listed at 1-3 Gibson Street, but the Curve Street address is what's shown in the 1909 Ipswich Rates book, so seems definitive.

Curve Street is the old name for the part of Rope Walk that runs east from what remains of Regent Street and curves round onto St Helen's St. Gibson Street ran south from Curve Street to the footpath which runs from the old Suffolk College site through to Back Hamlet. From the Gibson Street sign on the pub in our old photograph, we can infer that the pub stood on the south-east junction of the two roads.

The pub's closure date is recorded in the Borough Police licensed premises register 1903-1923.…
