WATFORD has witnessed an unprecedented number of changes over the years. The nineteenth and early twentieth centuries saw a great industrial and residential expansion which was followed by the Blitz, the reconstruction and the changes of the 1960s and 1970s to accommodate the growing traffic. Watford has been fortunate in having a number of dedicated photographers to record the developments as they happened. This informative and interesting volume places an emphasis on the people of Watford - where they worked, how they travelled, and what they did to relax and enjoy themselves. This brand new selection of images from John Cooper is sure to surprise and delight anyone who knows and loves this area.
