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?
