Oxford

Just a postcard quickie. Two postcards from my collection -- Oxford, England:



The city of Oxford is most famous for the University of Oxford.



In the United States, many communities would like to be associated with the academic reputation of Oxford, England. I counted 17 states that have a town named Oxford. Two of them (at least) have colleges or universities in those towns. How many "Oxfords" have you visited?

Hmmm... THE Oxford on several occasions.... Oxford, Mississippi once.... That's all I remember, although it's entirely possible I've zipped through some Oxford, Iowa or Oxford, New Hampshire, population 217, at some time or another....

Well, if you ever find your way to this side of Ohio, there is an Oxford where we have a Miami University (older than that Florida one).
