Shopping in Oxford

All photos copyright Oxfordshire County Council Photographic Archive.

Oxford is the city of dreaming spires and always has been.

However, over the years our high streets have - like many others across the country - become a thriving centre of international shopping outlets and mega-corporations.

Do you remember Oxford as it was?

Did you fight the queues at Timms toy shop on George Street?

Did you do your Christmas shopping at Littlewoods?
