Stand Fifteen Feet Below Your Statue...
As I have already discussed, the statues of Oxford do all tend to be located rather high up, either on top of buildings, or as is the case in this photo, near the top of a monument.
Perhaps the powers that be have positioned the great statues of Oxford this way to prevent the large student and vagrant population from stealing them as a drunken souvenir, or something. This would be entirely in keeping with some of the decisions made by the modern day Oxford county council over the years, but that’s a different (and extremely dull) story.
For now, this is the last of the statues from my hometown that I will share with you. We shall return to statue imitation on ground level in the weeks ahead.
