A White Christmas at Watford in 1908

Cassio Hamlet, Watford, on Boxing Day 1906
I have just posted two views of Watford in the Snow, taken by Fred Downer, and issued as post cards.

The card of Cassio Hamlet, shown above, was posted to Sam Starkey, who was working in Pietermaritzburg as an engineer for the Natal Government Railway. In finding out who he was I also found that many of the Starkey Family of Watford also worked for the railways, and in several cases were involved with signalling.

And a Merry Christmas to You All
