This photo of one of Britain’s most popular actors and comedians of his time being ‘pinched’ in Watford by four traffic wardens has again brought back memories for readers.

The picture of a mischievous-looking Norman Wisdom was first published by the Watford Observer in 1973 and was shared by Stephen Danzig on our nostalgia Facebook group ‘We grew up in Watford’.

It prompted a number of recollections, including from Gary Marlborough said: “When Norman Wisdom was making this series in Watford I was working in mac markets which was part of the fisheries group. We right opposite the Nation Westminster bank in 1973. Does anyone else remember mac markets?”

David Simpson said: “I remember that, even got his autograph. Wish I knew what happened to it lol.”

Sue Townsend added: “Norman Wisdom was filming in Leavesden Road, Garfield Street when I was a child, we lived next door but one to the Baptist Church, and he stood in our front garden chatting to my Mum between takes. Very friendly man.”

A look back through our online archives reveals this picture was previously the subject of another nostalgia piece in 2014 when our original story from 1973 was re-published.

It explained the comedian, who died in 2010 aged 95 and famously became a celebrity in Albania, had been filming Nobody is Norman Wisdom when he was ‘pinched’ by the four traffic wardens after they noticed his car on a yellow line.
