This is a view looking in almost the opposite direction to a previous image featuring Vicarage Road and environs, and so is worth inclusion in this collection of photographs taken around the south side of the town over 80 years ago.

An unusual view looking almost due north from Brookdene Avenue, Oxhey, towards the southern outskirts of the expanding market town of Watford (population 56,799 in 1931 census). It is now more than sixty years since I first became familiar with the area and I still visit some of the old haunts whenever I'm in South-west Herts, not least Watford Boys'GS, my alma mater from 1954-1961!
