This historical photo depicts Rickmansworth’s central road, Church Street, in a scene most likely more than a century old.
This picture came from a postcode, and whilst it’s exact date is unknown, it is most likely the very early 1900s, based on the clues shown in the image.
Horse-drawn carts, a long-lost pub, an ironmongers and advertisements for sewing machines are all sights no longer seen on this busy road today, which in its current form features cars, a newsagents and many solicitors and accountants.
However, some aspects remain, such as the view down towards St Mary’s Church, which gives the street its name.
