Photographs Oxford High Street

A view of High Street, seen from the top of Carfax Tower. This is the kind of view — a sweet city with her dreaming spires — that many people associate with Oxford. On the far left: the white-and-green dome of the Sheldonian Theatre; left of the centre: the Radcliffe Camera; right of the centre: there are two towers, namely the Lincoln College Library tower in the foreground, and the University Church of St Mary the Virgin in the background.
