The building in this picture has long since disappeared but the name in the front of it is of one of the best known car dealers in Watford.

The Watford Observer has again teamed up with Watford Museum and is delighted to showcase some pictures from its archive - this week it’s the first premises that was occupied by Norman Reeves Motors

The museum's volunteer archivist Christine Orchard said: "Norman Reeves Motors Ltd were originally on the High Street right next to the High Street Station. An earlier building on the site had been used by the Liberal Club but in 1926 that building was demolished and the one shown here, was erected. By 1930 it was occupied by Wilkinson's Ford Depot.

"Norman Reeves took over around 1947 and remained here until moving to the corner of Local Board Road in 1961.

"Unfortunately, all of the buildings in this photograph were demolished when the Lower High Street section of the ring road was constructed."

Watford Museum is now open Thursday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm. No booking is necessary but Covid prevention measures are still in place to keep visitors safe.
