Oxford - The University City

Still from 'Oxford' - Taken from 'Films of Britain 1941'
'For more than seven hundred years Oxford has existed as a centre of learning and culture. But it is not only a city of the past, loving and caring for its great traditions; it is also a city of the present and the future. its streets are thronged with the young men and women who one day will provide Britain's scholars, scientists, and statesmen. In the University, students from far off parts of the Empire, rich men's sons, and scholarship winners from Britain's industrial areas share alike the knowledge and culture offered by the University.'
