Slide1A Tour through Ipswich This slideshow begins at “Parting Paths,” the intersection of Essex Road (Rt. 133) and County Road (Rt. 1A). It first visits Crane Beach, then returns for a quick view of the landmarks in the South End, the East End, Jeffreys Neck, High Street, North main, Market Street, and South Main. I include a liberal dose of vintage postcards for a “Here and Now” perspective.” Created by Gordon Harris
