Note

"The man resposible for this sonework re-fronting of The Crown & Anchor Hotel was one of the foremost 19th century Ipswich architects, Thomas W. Cotman, nephew of the famous watercolourist, John Sell Cotman. His use of stone, not a characterisitic local building material in Ipswich, for business premises is unusual and can be seen in other fine town buildings including the nearby Lloyds Chambers on Cornhill" (Ipswich Borough Conservation Officer, Bob Kindred)
