Vicarage Road - a Memory of Watford.

I was born in Vicarage road 1943. There was a butcher named Jim Bound there. In later years the shop dealt in Montesa motorcycles. I knew Mr Bound and his three daughters. Barbara, Julia and Patricia. A late addition was baby James (Jamie). I believe Barbara married Alex Loose and Julia married Roy Phillips but would like to know what happened to Patricia, the youngest daughter. I have memories of Holy Rood school and the nearby market with the livestock, the swimming pool and Cassiobury Park. Saturday morning would mean a visit to the Gaumont cinema. In teenage years I attended a Jazz club in St Johns road I think. Visiting bands would include Aker Bilk, Kenny Ball, Chris Barber and others.
