The Watford Observer has again linked up with its friends at Watford Museum to look back at structures, objects or businesses from the town’s past that have either disappeared or been relocated and this week we recall an image of Trewins on a damp day in the past.
The museum’s volunteer archivist Christine Orchard said: “At the time of this photo (at the top of the page), from the 1980s, Trewins had been an established business along Queens Road.
“It began trading in the 1880s when Arthur Trewin purchased a draper’s shop in the road.
“As trade grew the business moved into the newly-built Osbourne House and in the 1960s an extension was constructed next to the existing property.
“When the shopping centre, originally named the Harlequin, was built Trewins moved into a brand-new store in 1990.
“Like all retail it shut its doors during lockdown in 2020 and sadly was never reopened.”
Watford Museum is open Thursday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm.
