Become a Picture Ipswich PI (Photo Investigator)

Help us to build the collection and enrich our knowledge of Ipswich history.


Show your love for Picture Ipswich and date the Desperate & Dateless collection.  Can you figure out when these photos were taken?  


Over time, photos fade and names are forgotten.  Can you recognise the Ipswich faces in our  Who Do You Think I Am?  collection?


If you think you are better at navigating and reading a map than an app on your phone, Mapping Ipswich will have you pinpointing the exact spot where our photos were taken.


There are over 32,000 stories to be told at the Ipswich General Cemetery.  Can you help us to make a start by transcribing headstones? 


There is a skill to reading old handwriting.  If you poses that skill, put it to good use by transcribing our Manuscripts collection.
