1964 Hertfordshire

8. Hertfordshire – St Albans – 1964

Hello – Welcome to WDEOD, a site full of Doris’ photographs!

Its purpose is to share the shots she took in her 50+ years of travel. I’m trying to do a post a film – so one tour may have many posts.
To see what I’ve put up so far, use the menu (three lines up there ↑ if you are on a phone or tablet) to go to a place or a year.


St Albans is just north of London. The Abbey Cathedral can be easily seen from the M25.

This is the Abbey gatehouse with a Commer van parked in front. Although the slide is quite clear I can’t read the reg or indeed the business.

One man with a petrol mower. I used to hate ours – I could never get it started.

This is one of the oldest pubs in Britain it says. I looked through some old images and the pub sign seems to change a lot. This particular one does not look like they are fighting.

By the way where it says ‘Ye’ it should be pronounced ‘Thee’ – it is an Old English letter called Thorn which medieval printers did not have in their fonts so substituted Y.
