Please click on the small picture to see it full size.

This sequence of photos takes you from the Common northwards along the western side, from around 1900 to the 1930s, to the Old Red Lion (currently Billy’s Wine Bar), then across to the ‘Tollgate house’ and from 67 High Street southwards, to the corner of Vaughan Road.

  • Lovely shot of the old days, such nostalgia!  Looks much better than the rat race today!!!

  • The picture certainly isn’t from the 1930s, as Pryor Reid, the Hatfield brewers, closed in 1920.

    Ed. Thank you for spotting this slip – in fact Kelly’s Directories show that Moody was trading on this site between 1903 and 1909, first as a cycle manufacturer, then as a motor manufacturer. By 1910 the premises were known as Herts Motors.
