Are you in this picture waiting for Elton John as he left Vicarage Road during the 1970s?

The former Hornets chairman again features prominently again as, thanks to the Watford Treasury, we continue our look back to a decade which was largely one of disappointment for Hornets fans until the rock star took over and persuaded a young up-and-coming manager to leave Lincoln City for Vicarage Road.

Scroll down this page and remember some more scenes from the 1970s and a period in the club's history when Billy Jennings and Ross Jenkins were among their more prominent players.

Yellow Black & Red! is a new monthly publication from The Watford Treasury.

Lighter in tone, it's a look at our love of Watford from a more personal perspective than found within its 'bigger brother'. As one would expect from The Watford Treasury, it is rich in imagery and features some fantastic writing.

Available from the Hornets Shop, Watford Museum or mail order (post free) YBR! is priced at just £3 and is sure to interest any Watford supporter.
