Watford in the Twentieth Century Volume 2 has proven to be a a big hit with readers

It has brought memories flooding back for those who were around in the 1940s and 1950s, but is also a must-read for younger generations who are interested in the history of south west Hertfordshire.

Researched and written by Oliver Phillips, the former assistant editor of the Watford Observer has added memories of his own and of contemporaries from the era in which Britain won the War but lost the Peace.

The publication includes many of the best photographs taken during this 21-year, pivotal period in the history of south west Hertfordshire.

It provides a fascinating insight into an era that remains within living memory for many of our readers and is the perfect companion for our first publication in the series covering the years 1900 to 1939.

Together, both volumes provide the most comprehensive account of what life was like in south west Hertfordshire in the first 60 years of the 20th Century.

So, as a special web-only offer, we are offering Volume 1 for the bargain price of £5, so newcomers to the series can own both for £17.99.

Whether it’s Volume 1, Volume 2 or both, Watford in the 20th Century would make the perfect gift.

Volume 2 £12.99 + Shipping
Volume 1 £9.99 + Shipping
Combined Price: £17.99 + Shipping
