77 Aldenham Road Oxhey Farm Dairy Postcard 1909 - Today the site of an office block, next to DAS Stores. I would guess, there's a connection with Brazier's Dairy Carpender's Park (used to be on brow of Hill Oxhey Lane)

Bomb / Air-raid shelter. Just off Haydon Road. Just about here. Dug into the bank, filled in when I last looked,, site of what I think was a small WW2 era Bomb / Air-raid shelter for Bushey. Standing room for 30-40 people. Rightly blocked-off, we would get in anyway. As 9-10 YO kids, used to play in it - late 60s. Damned dangerous in hindsight, it was set to cave-in.

Haydon Road - In the 60s early 70s there was a shop here "Haydon Radio'. Sold electrical goods. Bought my boyhood transistor radio there.

Corner Shop on Junct. Field Rd / Lower Paddock Rd Oxhey. In the 60s to early 70s owned by my school chum's [Martin Rand] parents. This picture is earlier. Challoner's the News/Con/Tob was on the opposite corner, and was the place to go for the revolting sort of sweets we kids loved. Penny chews and Sherbet dabs etc.

Junction of Capel Rd and Villiers Rd Oxhey. Pin is Loveday's, in the 60s a Bakers and maybe before, and when I last looked in 2013 it still is. Best bread for miles, but then I'm a Bread Nazi.
