Paintings and Watercolour Drawings in the Watford Museum

by Laurie B Harwood

Published Watford Council, [1992]

Paperback, 180 pages including 66 b/w plates

ISBN   0 907958 08 7

The catalogue is in two parts, and the second section, which covers picture of local landmarks and/or by local artists, will be of most interest to family historians who want to know what the places where their ancestors lived looked like.

Of particular interest to me are six paintings by Evacustes Phipson:

  • Leathersellers' Yard, Watford
  • 190 High Street, Watford (1921)
  • 224 High Street, Watford (1923)
  • A Shop in the High Street (Vines)
  • Chapman's Yard, Watford (1901)
  • Woodman's Yard, Watford (1928)
