I remember attending a meeting in St.Michael's Church Hall in April 1958, along with nearly 400 other cricket enthusiasts, to hear an illustrated lecture given by Trevor Bailey (Essex & England), assisted by Surrey & England pace bowler, Peter Loader, on the MCC tour of South Africa in 1956/57. Brilliant stuff, to be sure!

Much of the foreground and middle distance in this urban scene of West Watford consisted of the Harwoods Farm Estate until the end of the 19th century. In 1902, Watford's westerly extent terminated at Harwoods Road, but the next decade saw the sale of further parcels of land for housing, so that most of the streets indicated here had been laid out and sewered by the outbreak of war in August 1914.

A splendid image of Watford, looking north-east from West Watford just a year after the end of the Second World War, when the town's population had topped 65,000. Despite experiencing bomb damage, both from high explosives and incendiaries, throughout the hostilities, this part of the urban area appears to be relatively intact.
