We know when this photo of a newspaper seller in Watford was taken because it says on the picture, but do you know anything about him?

The Watford Observer has again teamed up with Watford Museum and is delighted to showcase some pictures from its archive - this week we bring you three of a newspaper vendor outside the Rose and Crown Hotel.

The museum's volunteer archivist Christine Orchard said: "This newspaper vendor must have been a regular sight on the High Street in the Market Place. The photo is an exact moment in his day and is labelled “Tuesday 16th March 1954, 11.45am”. It was taken outside of the Rose and Crown Hotel which was on the corner of Market Street.

Watford Observer:

"Presumably this was his usual pitch as he has his magazines and comics displayed on the hotel’s window sill. Some of the titles he had available were Picture Show, Swift and Girl.

Watford Observer:

"It would be wonderful if anyone can tell us something about this gentleman as, at the moment, nothing is known about him."

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

Do you know anything about the newspaper vendor?

"Watford Museum know nothing about the newspaper vendor pictured. Can you help? Any information you can supply may be published and also passed on to the museum."

We asked for your responses - this is what you sent.

Tell us what you know about the newspaper vendor?
Yes, he was my grandad and sold papers for years. He was a stone mason all his life. He passed away in the 1980s some years after my nan died.
