July 21st 1905

School holidays are here! Just seen girls pouring out of the Central Girls School on New Inn Hall Street (below), and boys from the City of Oxford High School on George Street. Funny to think that the latter will in the distant future become Oxford Spires Academy! Another ex-boys school is on Gloucester Green. I always have to double check what year I am in – it has also been a tourist information office, pub, Indian restaurant and bus enquiry centre. Nothing more embarrassing than asking for onion bhajis in a school reception ;).
