Ipswich Land Transport Society: Docks Tour 24/8/68
BR class O4 diesel no. D2281 skirts Ipswich Docks . The row of three chimneys in the background are atop Ipswich generating station (more correctly, Cliff Quay power station) which was skilfully blown to smithereens in November 1994 before a crowd of thousands on a Sunday morning. I lived only a ten minute walk from the best vantage point across the river at that time and have the event on S-VHS video tape. In fact in the early 1990's I lived almost opposite where this picture was taken some 26 years previously.
