Britain in Old Photographs:



The History Press


ISBN 978-0-7524-6556-2


WATFORD IN OLD PHOTOGRAPHS contains a wealth of previously unpublished photographs of the town drawn from the vast collection at Hertfordshire Archives & Local Studies.

The views show daily life in Watford during the twentieth century and earlier, and we see many of the town's historic and listed buildings before they were removed in the name of progress. The images also depict the hustle and bustle of a busy town' and show many family­run businesses that have long since disappeared. The book also shows important local events, forgotten street scenes, local characters and dignitaries.
