An interesting snapshot of Watford in the early Thirties, when the town continued to grow to around 56,000 inhabitants, from a figure of 45,000 in 1921. Looking north-west in this viewpoint, it's easy to appreciate how RAF pilots flying over Watford less than ten years hence would consider the urban area to be made up of parkland as much as industrial or commercial uses.
