  • I recently bought a copy of an old and rare postcard of a shop at the turn of the century, apparently in Watford. It’s a Fruiterer owned by W Smith and is situated on a corner. Outside there is an impressive sloping stand of numerous vegetables and fruit, three staff standing proudly either side – one a young girl, a smartly dressed man in a hat, probably the owner and another man dressed with an apron and more normal hat who presumably did the bulk of serving. I wondered if anyone knows where this shop was situated exactly? Thanks
