THE DREAMING SPIRES OF OXFORD AS ONLY THE AEROPLANE CAN SEE THEM

THE DREAMING SPIRES OF OXFORD AS ONLY THE AEROPLANE CAN SEE THEM

At the moment of the photograph the aeroplane was just about to fly over the buildings of Pembroke College, which is seen at the lower edge of the view, to the left. The spired tower adjoining is that of St. Aldate's, which gives its name to the street running from the Carfax to Folly Bridge. Opposite St. Aldate's is the domed gateway and belfry, the Tom Tower, of Christ Church. The magnificent Great Quadrangle with its concentric circular walks are on the other side of the buildings, which front St. Aldate's Street. The next obvious landmark is the dome of the Ratcliffe Library. A little to the right is the spire of St. Mary's, the University Church, and behind that are the buildings of All Souls, Hertford and New College.
