the cowley road

many, many moons ago i wrote a little about oxford, specifically the friction between town and gown. well, someone has written a book on one of the only areas of oxford -traditionally, at least and therefore the most interesting- not controlled by the university: cowley road.

annie skinner 'cowley road- a history'

some links here:



unfortunately, whilst entirely worthwhile it reads like a potential phd- it is a touch too dry and academic considering the subject matter. and hi-lo, one of the great cowley road institutions gets barely a mention.

*having read it all the way through, i can now say its pretty damn awful*
