Town Lectures and Concerts 2018

The lectures present Ipswich, with its rich history and cultural background through the
eyes of Suffolk-based speakers and with concert performances from local musicians.

LECTURE  NOVEMBER 8th

THE QUAKER INFLUENCE IN 19th CENTURY IPSWICH
Mike King

In this illustrated talk, Mike King focuses on influential Quakers in Ipswich who shaped not just
the town but the world beyond, including the Alexanders, who developed local banking, and
the Ransome family business which made such things as revolutionary ploughs and traction engines. Ransomes helped develop the original Ipswich Museum in 1847, the first gasworks and
the docks, including the cast-iron Stoke bridge, while Charles May made telescopes for the
Orwell Park Observatory, the Greenwich Observatory and contributed to the railways.
