St Michael's and All Saints, Watford

Help Desk
Following a query about a post card showing the Church of St Michael and All Angels before the tower was added I have created a page about the church, with two pictures with higher resolution images available on the wen site.

The first post card image, by Coles, shows the church hall, which was built in 1905 and which acted as a church until the church proper was built on the adjacent site. The second picture shows the church as it was when it opened in 1913 without a tower.

Because of the war the tower was not added until 1926.

Currently I don't have a post card of the church taken in the 1920's or 30s showing the tower to complete the story of the church's construction. Can you help?
