Old Houses in the High Street.
This book is an interesting collection of facts and pictures of Watford's past but has no index and not many references to the common man. It is therefore useful as a background to the history of the town but of little use to the average genealogist. [The 1986 reprint includes an index.]
The web site www.watford-history.co.uk, produced by J. B. Nunn, contains extracts from the text of this book.
