Watford is situated between the Rivers Gade and Colne, fifteen miles north-west of London in what Charles Lamb, the eighteenth-century English essayist, once called 'hearty, homely, loving Hertfordshire'. A Saxon chief named Wata is believed to have settled where the existing Lower High Street crosses the Colne, and this came to be known as Wata's Ford, later shortened to Watford. Watford Through Time takes the reader on a nostalgic journey through the old market town and the beautiful Cassiobury Park at a time when the pace of life was much slower and more tranquil than it is today. The images in this book, including those taken by the author as a modernday comparison, provide a fascinating insight into the tremendous changes that have taken place in the town over the last hundred years.
