The sight of an airship flying over Watford must have caused plenty of shoppers to turn their heads skywards when this picture was taken.

This wonderful image was shared on the Watford Observer's nostalgia Facebook group 'We grew up in Watford' which now boasts more than 2,500 members.

It was shared by Steve Anthony, who also posted the two pictures below of famous high street brands how their stroes used to look in the town centre.
