Harpenden is a small picturesque town situated on the A1081 midway between St Albans and Luton and 25 miles north-west of London. The town has charm and character all of its own, from the wide boulevard that is the High Street to the lush, verdant expanse of the Common that reaches almost into the town itself. Harpenden The Postcard Collection takes the reader on a nostalgic journey back to an age when the pace of life was much slower and more tranquil than it is today. This vibrant selection of old picture postcards offer a nostalgic and illuminating pictorial history of this attractive Hertfordshire town.
