There has been a church in this Watford road for more than a century but the picture in this postcard was take before the current building was constructed.

The Watford Observer is delighted to share pictures from the archive at Watford Museum and this week we look back at this view of Mildred Avenue.

The museum’s volunteer archivist Christine Orchard said: “Mildred Avenue, in West Watford, is a leafier street today than it was in the early 1900s.

“This postcard was posted in 1911 and probably taken several years earlier.

“The long fence on the left is the boundary of St Michael’s Church land but it's clear that building work had not commenced on the current building as there isn't much of a shadow cast over the road!”
